I've been thinking about getting a bracelet but I haven't aclue where to get it. I'm sure if I looked it up I'd find it but lately everything seems to be above my capabilities. Anyone know the website?
Most pharmacies carry the stainless steel ones, and they are about $8.00. This thread on the Parents Forum, has several links for other styles and types.
All brittle means, is that one has great fluctuations, which is pretty much hallmark for Type 1's. Some more so than others.- me

Another source may be your local jewelry store. I got a nice silver one that looks like a dressy bracelet that I wear to work, and also picked up a child's band that had a large silver ID piece on it. I got it engraved then put onto my watch band for weekends. I always wear my watch and that way I have the ID piece right on the band.

I got my bracelet from StickyJ.com and it's pretty "trendy" if I do say so myself. There's not a whole lot of room for engraving but I was albe to put the important info on it.

I checked out Stickyj.com and Beadin-Beagle.com, and they both have really cute stuff! I may have to try the clear nail polish trick first, though. Thanks for the tips, everyone!

My bracelet has a metal "tag" on it that has Diabetes on the front of it in all caps and also has remove strap see other side, I have engraved on that side the following
I've also programmed my phone with ICE number because some police and EMT's will look for that if they find your phone.

Hi Steve, I just saw your post and wanted to comment. I have type 1 for over 30 years and use the pump. I do not wear any Medical Alert jewelry because I would have to were multiple ones in order to fit all my info on it. LOL.... In addition to T1DM, I also have chronic kidney disease and a couple of severe allergies to meds. I know that I should wear one though. Fortunately, I have never lost consciousness or had a seizure. Good luck....
