About us

StickyJ Medical ID and sister company Thoughtful Impressions have been family owned and operated for more than 21 years. The company is led by CEO Lori Torman, who has an eye for great quality and classic styles. In the early days of medical id bracelets (we're talking 1960's), medical alert bracelets were pretty boring -- basically engraved metal tags with curb link chains. The same styles were offered for children, just smaller (no wonder kids didn't want to wear them). And, by the end of the 20th century things hadn't improved that much. Lori was among the first to recognize that medical id's could be fashion conscious, and in 2005 launched designs in leather as well as stainless, and introduced polyester kids medical id bracelets that had cute designs. The sport strap line of child medical id's she introduced nearly 20 years ago is still the most popular line of children's medical jewelry on the market today. And, we now produce more than 100 different styles of medical alert bracelets and necklaces for men and women. Our engraved bracelets are individually custom engraved by our team of master engravers, ship within three (M-F) business days from the date you order, and all products come with a 90 warranty against manufacturing defects. Please come and shop with us today. It will be our pleasure to serve you.

Your Healthy, Yet Tasty Gestational Diabetes Diet

21st Apr 2022

healthy eating with gestational diabetes

Gestational Diabetes affects a fair amount of women daily which can cause unnecessary stress to both mother and baby. Today, we thought it would be a great idea to share with everyone a list of some healthy foods to eat if you or someone you know is pregnant with diabetes.

Plant-based Foods – If you can manage to eat and keep them down, vegetables and other plant-based foods can help to ease you along with your gestational diabetes. Many vegetables are said to aid in digestion. Some of these vegetables are leafy greens which include spinach leaves, kale, cabbage, and romaine. A green salad is a fabulous way to include all of these greens in a tasty, easy and quick way.

Healthy Fats – It’s important for mom to have plenty of healthy fats in her diet so that she can maintain nutrition and energy for herself and her growing baby. In addition to leafy greens, a diet rich in healthy fats from plants and animals is a great idea. Some of the foods mom can obtain these foods from are avocados, peanuts (peanut butter with a low amount of sodium and sugar) coconut milk, olive oil, eggs, and walnuts.

Fruits – Fruits are filled with many vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants to aid in energy and immune efficiency. If mom is feelings extra lethargic and is looking for a pick-me-up, a good choice is to skip the caffeine and grab a banana or apple for some natural sugars.

Boost your protein– It’s also a great idea for mom and baby to have additional protein. A healthy way to do this is to ingest some of the items already listed above such as peanuts and eggs, but in addition, perhaps some cheese.

A good plan is to always be sure to start out your day with a full, healthy breakfast because that’s when your glucose levels are at the highest risk to be out of balance.
