I am type 1 but don't like to wear a medical bracelet. I am planning to start wearing now however, cause i fainted once (was very low) and if my brother wasn't there no one would have understood. Do you wear a Diabetes Identification Bracelet. And if so, does it include Type 1 or Type 2?

Mine has Line 1: insulin using
Line 2: Diabetes Type 1
Line 3: contact
Line 4: first name of daughter & her phone
I wear a sports band that does not require my taking it on or off except if I go into an MRI machine. It does not flop on my wrist.
Mine is very cheap but does the job. Yes we all need one if we're on insulin.
Some of the wording is on there because of my overseas experience. The word "Insulin" speaks in any language.
