It's Christmas. For many, that means presents, family, and lots and lots of food. When you're cooking for a family that includes people with food allergies, food intolerances or sensitivities, diabetes, Celiac disease, other health conditions, or special diets such as gluten-free or paleo, preparing those holiday feasts can be a little overwhelming. Fortunately, we've got some great ideas right here on the Lauren's Hope blog to help keep everyone safe AND well-fed this holiday season.


Awareness ribbons and medical IDs: A color for every condition

People often want to wear the colors associated with their conditions. For example, here at Lauren's Hope, we receive messages from people with Multiple Sclerosis asking for more orange bracelets and from people with Addison's Disease asking for more light blue bracelets. People with Epilepsy request purple, as do those with lupus and fibromyalgia. Wearing the color associated with one's condition is an empowering choice, one that helps people raise awareness in a positive, intentional way.

Yes! It's Friday! And better yet, it's FREE STUFF FRIDAY! We engrave hundreds and thousands of medical ID plaques here at Lauren's Hope, and every once in a while, our awesome engraving team gets a request that makes us chuckle or just say, "Awwwww!" such as this engraving on Andrew Mills' Napoli medical ID bracelet, which he ordered in honor of his girlfriend, Celeste Morris, and was kind enough to share with us.


Why Everyone With Hypertension Needs A Medical Alert Bracelet

Top Risk Factors For Hypertension

For people with hypertension, or high blood pressure, medical alert bracelets are an extra layer of protection against serious complications from a cardiac event. If your blood pressure is high most of the time (that is, not just when you’re nervous at the doctor or have been drinking excessive amounts of caffeine, but high in resting and moderately active states), your doctor will likely run additional tests, measure your blood pressure at various points in the day, and diagnose you with high blood pressure. This means your blood pressure is usually 140/90 or above. Normal blood pressure is 120/80 or below (it can be too low, however, which is also potentially problematic).

Jake's Story: One in a Thousand

  
  
  

Every now and then here at Lauren’s Hope, someone in our own lives suddenly needs a medical ID bracelet. That’s what happened when Jake, a 16-year-old guitar player and high school student from Tallahassee, FL, was unexpectedly hospitalized and diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes (T1D). Jake’s mom, Julie, went to school with Lauren’s Hope blogger, Tara Cohen, and said one of the first things she said to her son was, “Hey, you’re going to need a medical ID, and I have the perfect place to go!” When Jake asked where, Julie handed him their laptop and said, “It’s this website called Lauren’s Hope. Type it in.”
