Love your jewelry! I got a new tag for Christmas (Angel one), and have got so many compliments on it. Oh, and my healthy tip for the new year: Eat more protein, less carbs! ;-)

Have been wearing your medical id's for years and always have people complementing me on them. My advise for the new year is "keep on moving!" 
Walk a little farther tomorrow than you did today.

Walk more, drink more water and watch what you eat. Wear medical ID at all times.

My daughter and I both have several Lauren's Hope bracelets and we often get compliments on them and people are even surprised that they serve as medical alert bracelets because they are so pretty!

One way I will be making sure that not only myself but my family is safer this year, is to put an emergency plan in writing. We have talked over our emergency plan, but have never put it in writing to make sure it is clear. I will be doing this this weekend. I want to make it clear but not scary so my son feels safe and protected.
Posted @ Friday, January 17, 2014 9:09 AM by Wendy Korhorn
Love your stylish products!! It's a nice way to let those that need to know you've got a medical condition without BLARING it to everyone! :)
Posted @ Friday, January 17, 2014 9:13 AM by Carrie
LOVE Lauren's Hope!! My daughter's biggest problem with wearing her medical id is deciding which one. Thank you for giving her so many options!
Posted @ Friday, January 17, 2014 9:15 AM by Amy
My tip for living safer in the new year is to always carry a list of your medications, you doctors and their contact information, and your medical conditions in your wallet.

I would love to have a bracelet for my grandson who is diagnosed with autism so his mom doesn't have to worry about his wandering. So many children with autism have this issue and many have died due to their attraction to water and dangerous places.

Always wear your medical id jewelry! You never know when it might save your life. Thanks to Lauren's Hope medical id jewelry is now also stylish!

Taking care of your family is the most important job. Eating healthy is important, drinking lots of water, and exercising. With kids some of this can be challenging. We encourage our kids to play outside even in the winter. We want healthy active kids! We turn off the electronic devices and enjoy our family.
Posted @ Friday, January 17, 2014 10:28 AM by Christy Wageman
My daughter is entering her pre-teen age years. According to her, wearing a medical id is not "cool" in her words. Lauren's Hope has given her different choices that help her to belong to her grade. Thank you! 
Our tip for living healthy in the New Year is to stay active, laugh more, and enjoy each other.
Posted @ Friday, January 17, 2014 10:30 AM by Lisa
I will make more than 1 epipen available for my PA daughter at school and always have her wear her medical ID.
Posted @ Friday, January 17, 2014 10:35 AM by Tamrah Tso
I like your page and shared your great post from Autism Society the other day. My ideas for living safer this year are to try to reduce stress in my life by deep breathing, positive thinking, and spending quality time with family. Oh, and by doing things for myself such as painting and crocheting.
Posted @ Friday, January 17, 2014 10:37 AM by Shelley
I love your jewelry and making it so we can wear medical ID braclets without losing our sense of fashion. I plan on being more proactive with my health this year. Go spoonies!

I love your bracelets and wear mine daily. To live a safer 2014, I would suggest to all my fellow Type 1 diabetics to make sure they have on a medical I.D. everyday!

ALWAYS make sure to wear her Lauren's Hope bracelet...only off in the tub...because you never know ...even at night...when it might be necessary.

I wear my beautiful Lauren's Hope gold mini medical dog tag necklace everyday. I don't leave home without it. Thank you for making my 2014 safer, especially during my travels!

We love all the bracelets at Lauren's Hope. My daughter always wears her Lauren Hope bracelet with pride. She thinks they are so cute!I know that medical staff will know how to treat her in an emergency because of her medical alert bracelet from Lauren's Hope.
Posted @ Friday, January 17, 2014 4:33 PM by Cindy
My idea for living safer in the new year? Duh... I'm ordering Lauren's Hope ID's for mom with dementia, and her three primary caregivers! She no longer remembers where she lives or our last names. So sad. We want her to have a tangible and beautiful reminder that she won't get lost, and that if anything should happen to one of us, others will know right away how to help her. She remembers the concept of medical id bracelets, but resisted because they are so "ugly" and she didn't want people to know anything was wrong. When I showed her Lauren's Hope ID's she said "oh yeah- I'd wear one of those, they are pretty! And so it is: Lauren's Hope New Year for us.

Reduce stress! It's hard, I'm having my own struggles trying to eradicate at least some of it but it needs to go!!

I need to get a bracelet...just can't make up my mind which one..so many choices. Be kind to one another.
Posted @ Friday, January 17, 2014 6:44 PM by Tina
One way that we plan to help our daughter live safer is to purchase another Lauren's Hope medical alert bracelet. We bought two last year, the clasp broke on one with in a month of getting it, and the band on the other one is tethering because she wears it so much. They are great bracelets, being able to choose from a variety of colors and styles is awesome for my daughter.
Posted @ Friday, January 17, 2014 8:31 PM by Becky Hale
Loving all three of my new medical id bracelets! My health tip for the new year is to eat less processed foods and drink more water.
Posted @ Friday, January 17, 2014 8:47 PM by Stacy Lonsdale
I try to very aware of my surroundings and never go anywhere without a change of clothes. You just never know what will happen and where.
Posted @ Friday, January 17, 2014 9:55 PM by Debbie Bradley
We have three type 1 diabetics in our family, and making sure they all wear medical alert bracelets or necklaces is our way of staying safe.
Posted @ Friday, January 17, 2014 10:09 PM by susan kraus
Hoping my daughter can sport one of these super cute bracelets. Just another took to keep her safe!!
Posted @ Saturday, January 18, 2014 8:37 AM by Stephanie Wells
For me, living safer in the new year includes several things. It means changing my insulin pump catheter every 3 days and it means checking my sugar more often so that I can keep my numbers under control!

Everyone in my family with a medical condition started out the year with new medical IDs. It's something they wouldn't buy themselves, so I purchased a large order on January 1st.
Posted @ Saturday, January 18, 2014 10:20 AM by Rachelle
My suggestion for the new year actually involves a better way to use our bracelets. Here is my tip. When deciding who you want to put as an emergency contact on your bracelet, simply put "ICE" followed by that persons phone number. The health care providers and emergency responders will recognize that "ICE" stands for, in case of emergency. It really does work too! I was recently being admitted via the ER, and one of the nurses looked at my bracelet. She commented, what a clever idea...and that she was going to pass it along to future patients. In a true emergency, where you couldn't speak for yourself, something like this could truly be a matter of life and death.
Posted @ Saturday, January 18, 2014 3:25 PM by Cara
I had carpal tunnel surgery and need to maybe try something other than a bracelet for a while.
Posted @ Saturday, January 18, 2014 3:31 PM by Mary
I like the idea of incorporating the jewelry as a part of healthier living, and a safer way to ensure one receives the best care possible. Thinking along those same lines I have the following suggestion: why not consider engraving a line on the tag stating "medical records on file @ ... Insert name of hospital here" Alternately, one could consider making sure that they try to fill all prescriptions at the same pharmacy or mail order program? (And see if the pharmacy can keep a record of your drug allergies too?) In this second scenario, you could engrave a line on tag stating "call 555-5555 for current med list and allergies" or "medications on file at ...blank pharmacy, city, state" You might have to play around with the wording so that it all fits? However, like the previous poster mentioned, having an accurate record in an emergent situation where you are either too sick to speak, or unable to speak? Something as simple as this might just save your life?
Posted @ Sunday, January 19, 2014 1:09 AM by Judith
Here is my suggestion, many of us rely on medications to help us lead more normal lives. We have all likely kept a food journal or a pain journal at some point in our lives? Well, how about a medication journal? You can start by asking the pharmacist to print out a copy of your meds and fill dates, usually they can go back at least a year or more? With this tool, consider starting a journal with all of your medications and the start & stop dates of all meds. You can include notes as to why you might have had to stop a certain medicine, or if there were any noticeable side effects? Once you have started this, continue to record any unusual symptoms or things that just don't feel right? This could be a useful tool for both you and your doctor to look for trends regarding how well you are responding to a certain medicine, evaluate for possible interactions, etc. I recently had a VERY severe reaction to a medication, and we missed it for nearly 3 months. This particular medicine was slowly killing me, but because I was put on several new medicines at the same time, an acute illness in same time frame and the fact that my specific reaction was quite rare, my entire team of doctors kept missing this. Had I been keeping a journal, I might have actually caught on sooner and saved myself a lot of physical and emotional pain. I would take this one step further and consider every time a new medication is added, to look it up online and be on the alert for possible interactions or side effects? Additionally, bringing this journaled info to your appointments might be useful, especially if you have multiple specialists. Sadly, most people assume that the doctors communicate with each other on your case. Truth is, it often takes some nudging and initiative on the part of the patient. I have gone so far as to pick up reports from tests and hand carry them to my Dr. appointments, as they don't always get sent over like they are supposed to. You are your best advocate when it comes to healthcare. Don't ever forget that!

Thanks Lauren's Hope! I have bought 3 braclets (one for mom and two for me) before the new year. I expected them to come later then they actually did! I was able to start wearing a bracelet at the very bginning of the year! Thanks to the service you provide, I feel safer every where I go. The peace of mind that comes from wearing one of Lauren's Hope bracelets is a God's send.

I love the way your bracelet looks very fashionable. Living with Type 2 diabetes is to stay active, eat healthy and carry around emergency sugar or juice for low BG.

Love the fashionable look of all of your Medical alert jewelry. I don't mind wearing the Medical symbol now(I am not fond of snakes, so never wanted to wear one before). My daughter gave me a gift certificate for Christmas and I ordered the Guardian Angel tag with the Rococo bracelet and Love it. I have more bracelets picked out for future orders. The inner changeable bracelets are great!

My daughter was 5 when she was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes and she is now 24, Lauren's Hope has been a part of our lives as long as I remember and always will be.
