    When/how did a blue ring become the symbol of diabetes? I'm diabetic type 2 but never heard of this....

    L'chaim!

    thanks for educating me....

    I also manage mine with pills and diet. In addition, the day I got diagnosed as diabetic, I joined MedicAlert. They're the oldest organization I believe in the area of wearable tags (mostly bracelets and necklaces) for medical situations. I'm not sure of the situation in Canada, but I know here in the States, at most any retail pharmacy counter there are a number of brochures from organizations that sell such things. Interesting enough, MedicAlert seems to be the only one that is NOT a for-profit commercial entity.

    I like MedicAlert because of its history for sure. But also because first responders and other medical folk can call in, refer to a file number from the member subscriber's (read patient!) tag, and get complete info including current medical conditions, meds being taken, known allergic reactions, emergency contacts including doctors, relatives, and clergy. I've spoken to people who I knew are first responders, and they acknowledge they are trained to look for these tags.

    I have personally had my life saved as a result of wearing the MedicAlert tag -- went into a hypo glucose blackout once and that made a big difference in how the EMT treated me!

    L'chaim!
