"Apparently Brittany Murphy was not in perfect health. TMZ reports that Brittany Murphy’s mom “told paramedics her daughter had a history of diabetes.” While there is no proof of Brittany Murphy having diabetes, we can only assume that the information her mother has provided is correct."
If my mom called the paramedics for me, she would say something like that because she -- along with almost everyone else I know -- doesn't understand the importance of knowing the difference between the two types (despite my many sermons on the subject).
My boss was telling me about someone she knew and said she had "really bad" diabetes. Is that like being really pregnant?
Medic Alert comes to mind. I have not taken mine off since I got it nearly 30 years ago - now granted the fact that it is custom made has a bit to do with it and that I told my parents if they got me a solid gold one I would never take it off. Guess what? 30 some years ago, for my birthday, I got a solid gold Medic ALert bracelet.
I understand that a celebrity may not be in the position to wear a medic alert all the time but if she was in her civilian life at the time of the incident the ME would have been all the information she needed to provide.
