  • The Rise of Medical Jewelry

    What happens when the worlds of fashion and medical needs meet? Medical jewelry has been around for many years, but it has taken a new turn of awareness for many people who are suffering from different diseases and conditions. Those with medical badges have been reluctant to wear them due to their bulky sizes and appearance. Because of this, there has been a big shift in the appearance of the medical jewelry in the last few years and more options continue to come out as well. There are now many different pieces available in necklaces, bracelets and charms.

    These pieces look like fashionable pieces of jewelry, but also have a medical symbol on the outward side and any specifics on the opposite side. When someone feels like the piece of jewelry is not an eye sore, they are more likely to wear it; so more and more people are satisfied with putting this very important piece of jewelry on every single day.

  • When Should You Get Medical Jewelry?

    Every now and then, you may notice some people are wearing a bracelet or necklace that has a medical insignia on it. What are these pieces of jewelry and why do people wear them? To put it simply, these bracelets and necklaces are worn as a way of notifying other people that the wearer has some sort of medical need. The needs can cover a variety of different areas, but if there is a medical emergency, these pieces of medical jewelry can save that wearer’s life.

    Who Should Wear These Bracelets and Necklaces?

    • Diabetes
    • Food allergies
    • Drug allergies
    • Insect allergies
    • Heat disease
    • Autism
    • Epilepsy, seizures
    • Sight, hearing, or mentally impaired
    • Alzheimer’s/Dementia/Memory problems
    • Blood disorders
    • Parkinson’s disease
    • Asthma
    • Cystic fibrosis
    • Breathing disorders
    • Stroke risk
    • Taking multiple medications
    • Taking blood thinners or other serious-when-mixed medications
    • Mental health Issues
    • Rare diseases
    • Transplant patients
    • Cancer patients
    • Special needs children/adults

    This is a just a sample of the afflictions and illnesses that can be worn on a medical ID. Many times doctors will recommend that their patient should be wearing a bracelet, but the patient doesn’t always heed the advice. If you feel like you would have any sort of medical needs or requirements that should be known in an emergency situation, or you or your loved one is unable to communicate these needs to others, then you are the perfect candidate for a medical ID.

    Why Should You Wear Them?

    For adults, there are many circumstances where there could be a major health problem, such as seizures or passing out while driving, and people need to know what is wrong and what the best way would be to treat those suffering. For children, it is important to have a medical ID on them so that people around them can know if there are any medical issues; for example, food allergies. This way the medical conditions can be known, even if the person, adult or child who is wearing the ID is not able to tell the responders.

    When a person is unable to communicate their needs, this bracelet is supposed to do the job. Many times people will be exhibiting symptoms that could be interpreted to be any number of problems. This can lead to a misdiagnosis on the part of medical personnel who may be trying to help figure out what is wrong. If someone has passed out at the scene of a car accident, it could have been a person with epilepsy having a seizure, a diabetic with too low of blood sugar, or maybe it’s just someone who drank too much alcohol at a party. Having the answers right there on the person, with a piece of medical jewelry, can be crucial in saving a life as now emergency responders can take a more educated guess and give the proper help immediately.

    Do They Really Make A Difference?

    Having some sort of medical jewelry on your person will always make a big difference. When asked, emergency response teams reported that 95% of them look for a medical ID when first assessing a patient. This means that the ID’s are almost certain to be seen. Plus, if you are sending your child to school, a party or to someone else’s house, it can serve as a reminder of allergies, needed medications or other medical requirements that the wearer should remember.

    When Should You Order?

    There are many different levels of these ailments and conditions that people suffer from that require different amounts of attention. However, if you walk away from a doctor’s appointment knowing that you are going to need an ID eventually, the sooner you get it the better. Anything could happen at any time when you are just going about your day. If you are left unable to communicate your medical needs, you could be risking a lot of health problems as well as unnecessary bills. Having an ID on you is a great insurance policy against these two things and possibly death. Getting your ID made and sent to you can take some time, so ordering it should be your first priority. Have it sent to you and always remember to wear it, because you never know when you are going to need it!

  • Lifestyles Tips for Managing Type 2 Diabetes in 2013

    Photo of New Year's Resolution: Lifestyle Tips for Type 2 Diabetes
    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 Management

    • 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:

    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.
