6 Tips For Diabetes-Safe Workouts

Posted by Guest Author on Jul, Thu 20, 2017

A few weeks ago, a young woman working out next to me at the gym suddenly collapsed. She was still unconscious when the ambulance arrived, but luckily came to and seemed to be feeling ok when they left for the hospital.

It was a scary experience, and really made me think about what would happen if I had an accident at the gym (or anywhere else) and needed medical assistance.

As a person living with type 1 diabetes, it’s essential for me that the ambulance crew or first responders know that I have diabetes so they can treat me accordingly.

Do I Need A Medical ID?

Posted by Tara Cohen on Nov, Tue 15, 2016

If you’re asking, then odds are the answer is yes. Wearing medical ID jewelry, particularly when it is custom engraved with your specific information, is a simple daily habit that can make a huge difference in an emergency. If you’re not sure, ask yourself:

Are you at risk of your health condition(s) causing an emergency? For instance, people with Type 1 Diabetes are at risk of having a low blood glucose event, which can cause a variety of symptoms, including (but of course not limited to) disorientation, loss of balance and coordination, and loss of consciousness. Wearing a medical ID bracelet custom engraved with your name, diagnosis, treatment instructions/considerations, and emergency contact information can make a tremendous difference in the outcome of that event. If a first responder knows immediate that s/he is seeing a diabetic emergency, s/he can jump straight to checking glucose numbers and treating you rather than doing detective work to figure out what’s going on. Says Jeremy*, an EMT and Santa Barbara City Fire Department Engineer, “It really speeds up the decision-making process [as we] try to, One: See what the problem is, and, Two: Try to correct it. If it’s something as simple as diabetes, if we give someone sugar, in less than a minute, they can be sitting up and talking to us. But if we don’t know they have diabetes, there’s a longer process to go through [...] One of the most important things is patient history, and any medical problems that are on that bracelet are huge clues [as we’re determining] what’s going on with that person.”

Even before first responders arrive, if a Good Samaritan reads your medical ID to a 911 dispatcher, they can immediately start providing better guidance to those attempting to assist you until medical professionals arrive.
