    Added by My Identity Doctor

    Diabetes Emergency KiIf you or someone you love suffers from diabetes, then you need to be sure to have the essentials for a diabetic emergency on hand. Prepare a kit with the following items and keep one in your car and one at home. If you have a place of employment, you will want to have one on hand there as well.

    In this kit, include:

    1. Insurance Card
    2. A list of any current prescriptions that are being taken.
    3. At least two weeks of insulin and syringes as well.
    4. You will also want to include a blood glucose monitor
    5. Test strips and lancets
    6. Having extra batteries on hand is also a necessity.
    7. Insulin pump
    8. Glucagon kit
    9. Ketone strips
    10. Non- perishable food, such as juice boxes and crackers.

    Another essential for diabetics is a diabetic bracelet. First of all, paramedics and other medical staff are aware of diabetes jewelry, and will look for it in case of emergency. Wearing diabetic identification jewelry will ensure that you receive the correct treatment necessary for your particular condition.

    Many times, with diabetes, you will only have a small window of time to receive treatment before the emergency becomes life threatening. By having a diabetic bracelet on, you will get quicker treatment, because the medical staff will already be aware of your health condition.

    Don’t wait to put together your diabetic emergency kit. By being prepared with your kit and your diabetic bracelet, it can make the difference between life and death.
