Precautions for Managing Your Child’s Food Allergies at School, Including Wearing Medical ID JewelryPreparing to send a child to school with food allergies is a scary and sometimes overwhelming venture. The goal is to try to control your child’s environment as best as possible. In this article, we summarize key precautionary steps you can take to have influence over the school environment. It’s worth noting, that while reviewing other blogs on the subject, we’re struck that a majority leave out the explicit importance of adding medical ID jewelry to your child’s food allergy safety plan. Here are some precautions you can take to minimize the chances of your child consuming foods that may cause an allergic reaction and the steps to take to ensure that your child gets proper care in the event of a reaction: 1. Develop and submit an “Emergency Allergy Action Plan” - Endorsed by the Food Allergy & Anaphylaxis Network, this plan outlines critical care, including allergic symptoms to watch for, that the school must follow in the event of an allergic reaction emergency - To download the Emergency Allergy Action Plan go to: www.foodallergy.org/files/FAAP.pdf - Set-up an appointment to meet with your child’s teachers, administrators, school nurses, aides and ideally cafeteria staff to review this plan at the start of the new school year. - During this meeting, be sure to discuss how the school communicates your child’s food allergies to secondary school staff, such as bus drivers, substitute teachers, after-school sports coaches, etc. - Many cafeteria menus are prepared months in advance, be sure to review the menu in this meeting. 2. Make sure the school has your child’s epinephrine auto-injector and any medications provided by your doctor 3. Don’t be shy about discussing your child’s food allergies with other parents. Once they understand the severity of your child’s allergies, they are more likely to become allies in helping to prevent your child’s exposure to dangerous foods via not packing those foods in their children’s lunch and educating their children about your child’s allergies. 4. Have “safe snacks” stocked and ready in your child’s classroom in the event that snacks are provided that your child is allergic to. This sway your child will have snacks they enjoy without feeling left out. 5. Your child should always wear medical ID jewelry in the form of a medical ID bracelet or necklace. There are a lot of misconceptions about food allergies, particularly just how severe and dangerous they are. Wearing medical ID jewelry accomplishes two critical things: - Can save your child’s life by alerting first responders (EMT) to the allergy so they administer fast and proper care at the moment emergency treatment is being given. - Medical ID jewelry sends a clear message to school staff and other parents that your child’s food allergy is serious and not simply a mild reaction or irritation to certain foods. Information to include on the medical ID tag should include name, allergy, medication (e.g., “Use Epi-Pen”) and emergency contact info. If your child is initially resistant to wearing medical ID jewelry, remember that there are endless styles to choose from that are geared towards children’s likes and interests. At N-Style Medical ID, we strive to create fun and functional medical ID jewelry for children. Be sure to include your child in the process of choosing medial ID jewelry so that they ultimately “love” what they’re wearing. N-Style ID makes attractive medical alert jewelry for kids, teens, and adults. Since its founding, N-Style ID’s core vision is to make the lives of all those dealing with conditions requiring medical ID's less stressful by providing fun and fashionable medical jewelry. www.n-styleid.com Continue reading...

Type 2 diabetes is not only the fastest growing disease on the planet, its one of the main illnesses for which N-Style ID designs medical alert and medical ID jewelry. Since January is the month of proactive planning to make positive change in our lives, we focused our first 2013 blog on lifestyle and diet tips for people with Type 2 diabetes.With concentrated efforts to make practical lifestyle and diet changes, managing and minimizing the symptoms of Type 2 diabetes can be accomplished in anyone’s life. Type 2 diabetes is generally caused by genetics and obesity combined with a sedentary lifestyle and poor eating habits. People that carry excess weight, especially in their midsection, are more likely to develop type 2 diabetes. Any plan to minimize the symptoms of Type 2 diabetes is always centered on incorporating healthy lifestyle changes into our daily routine. The thing about the recommended changes for diabetics, is that they are virtually the same for people not suffering from diabetes who are looking to improve their overall health. So the good news is that a Type 2 diabetic is not alone in seeking a healthier lifestyle. Diet and exercise goals can be made with your partner or friends. Here are the core changes needed to improve the overall health and well-being of people with Type 2 diabetes: Eating Habits and Meal Patterns
- Eat smaller, more frequent meals. Stick to the same meal times each day.
- Managing and tracking the amount of carbohydrates at each meal or snack will keep your blood sugar level steady throughout the day.
- It’s not just the actual food you eat that affects blood sugar levels but how much you eat and when you eat affects blood sugar in the body.
- Omega-3 fish oils can improve glucose tolerance, high triglycerides, and cholesterol levels
- Incorporate high-fiber, low-glycemic-index sources of carbohydrates like whole-grains, fruits, vegetables into your diet.
- Limit intake of saturated and trans fatty acids.
- Exercise promotes cardiovascular fitness and weight loss, lowers high blood pressure, improves lipid profiles and improves blood sugar control. Since excess fat in the body can decrease the number of insulin receptors in the body, weight loss is a critical component to managing diabetes.
- Alcohol is essentially pure sugar so it worsens glucose tolerance. Try to completely refrain from or drastically reduce your alcohol intake
- Stress is very bad for people with diabetes. Unmanaged stress elevates blood sugars. Identify techniques to help lower stress levels such as reading, meditating or yoga.
