It is important that all people living with diabetes wear or carry medical identification, such as a necklace or bracelet. Your health and safety are important. If you are not able to help yourself then other people would be able to help you if they know you have diabetes.

There are many online companies that sell medical identification. The Safety Store at University of Iowa Stead Family Children’s Hospital sells medical identification bracelets. The Safety Store is on Level 1 of the children’s hospital.
