Due to their rare blood disorder they are advised to wear medical id jewelry as well as a medical ID card detailing the key information related to their type of Sickle Cell Disease. As today is World Sickle Cell Day, we thought it appropriate to provide an overview of the Nation’s World Health Organization’s efforts to address the health threat of Sickle Cell Diseases.

This April marks the 43rd annual National Autism Awareness Month, which has been kicked off by the World Autism Day every April 2 since 2007.
As we celebrate autism awareness issues this month, its important to understand some key statistics about the state of autism in 2013:
- Autism is the fastest-growing developmental disability with a 1,148% growth rate.
- Every 11 minutes, a child is diagnosed with an autism spectrum disorder.
- 1 in 88 children in the United States is on the autism spectrum; 1 in 54 boys.
- 1 percent of the population of children in the U.S. ages 3-17 have an autism spectrum disorder.
- Prevalence is estimated at 1 in 88 births.
- 1.5 million Americans live with an autism spectrum disorder.
The Autism Awareness Month kicked off with the World Autism Awareness Day. World Autism Awareness Day is one of only three official health-related United Nations Days with the goal of bringing the world's attention to autism.
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.
Regular Exercise and Weight Loss
- 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.
Limit Alcohol Intake
- 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.
There are endless online diet and exercise programs for people with Type 2 diabetes to help them achieve their goal of a healthier lifestyle:
Exercise Tips and Programs
And finally, wearing your medical alert /medical ID jewelry is also a core tool in managing Type 2 diabetes. It’s surprising that many adults with Type 2 diabetes don’t where medical alert jewelry. The importance of wearing medical ID jewelry for your overall health can’t be understated. In the event of an emergency, first responders need to know of your condition so they can administer proper care thus potentially saving your life.

The mustache craze has hit N-Style’s medical ID jewelry line. It seems everywhere you look, a mustache is sure to appear. All over Pinterest and Etsy, mustaches are appearing on coffee mugs, t-shirts, jewelry and just about anything you can think of. The accessory of choice at weddings and children’s parties is the ubiquitous mustaches-on-a-stick. Mustaches are even appearing on baked goods at high-end bakeries, like cupcake toppings in posh neighborhoods like Napa Valley, CA.
While we’re not exactly sure where this craze started (Hipsters?, the Movember movement?), we know our line of medical ID jewelry wouldn’t be complete until we created an homage to the mustache craze.
N-Style ID’s new “Mustache” children's medical ID bracelet is a fun and causal piece covered with a variety of trendy mustache icons and is perfect for everyday wear. Click here to view the “Mustache”: www.n-styleid.com/mustache-medical-id-bracelets
The Mustache bracelet is made of khaki-colored nylon webbing and adjustable with a plastic center push buckle. Even though this band is classified as a children’s medical bracelet, it will also fit an adult size 7" wrist. Excess length may be cut and melted with a heat source to keep the webbing from fraying.
Order the Mustache bracelet complete with the your personalized medical ID tag. Engraving is printed on the back of the slider medical ID tag. Then shop our huge selection of kids medical bracelets without ID tags. All of the bands and bracelets are interchangeable with the original ID tag created for the Mustache. (Warning: This medical bracelet for kids under 3 are not recommended as they may present a choking hazard.)
