Tattoos Replacing Medical-alert Bracelets For Those With Diabetes, Other Ailments

Tattoos Replacing Medical-alert Bracelets For Those With Diabetes, Other Ailments

NAPLES, Fla. - The first time Jimbo Carriero died, it lasted only a few minutes. "I didn't see the white lights everyone talks about, but I sure got an overwhelming feeling of total bliss," Carriero said of complications following a stent procedure after a heart attack in September 2008. "It was beautiful, just a beautiful feeling, like all my bills had been paid." So the next time, he wants to stay there. The 52-year-old owner of Body Branding Tattoo Emporium in Naples had "Do Not Resuscitate" tattooed on his chest a year later. He is among a growing number of people who want a more permanent medical alert. The Canadian Medical Association Journal reported in May that medical tattooing appears to be increasing, partly because the often-pricey medical alert bracelets can be lost or broken, some people prefer tattoos, and others can't wear jewelry at work. The journal detailed tattoos for diabetes, blood types and end-of-life wishes. Like Carriero, Spencer Cootware nearly died. After a day of fishing on Dec. 29, the 50-year-old Naples bail bondsman felt the worst pain he'd ever experienced, "like an alien crawling out of my back." Clutching his cellphone, he dialed 911 and shouted for help as he fell to the floor at home. He'd suffered a ruptured aorta. After that, he bought a medical alert card for his wallet and a bracelet and dog tag with his medical information stored on a USB device. "I don't want them to do unnecessary surgery," Cootware said of emergency medical technicians and doctors, adding that it was corrected with medication. Last week, he took a more permanent step: A medical tattoo on his right wrist with the words "Medical Alert: Type B Thoracic Aortic Aneurism." "If I'm incapacitated and can't talk, they would do a screen of my body and see the aneurysm Continue reading >>

In a medical emergency, you may not be able to tell first responders about your specific health condition, which prevents medical personnel from properly diagnosing you. Medical cards help responders and medical alert professionals reach a faster diagnosis, provide correct treatment and eliminate errors. Many individuals with medical conditions opt to wear medical ID tags, but these items often dont provide enough information for medical personnel, particularly if you have many allergies, are taking numerous medications or have several serious conditions. Wallet medical ID cards provide the space to list all the crucial health information that could help save your life. If you do wear a medical ID tag, it is smart to engrave the phrase See wallet card, which will direct medical responders to your wallet card for additional health information. What Information Should Be Included on a Wallet Medical ID Card? There are numerous templates available for a wallet medical ID card. Some templates provide more information than others.

Your Medical Alert: Jewelry, Wallet Cards, Tattoos?

Your Medical Alert: Jewelry, Wallet Cards, Tattoos?

____ Happens! You can’t prevent every bad thing from happening in life. Even if you follow all seven healthy behaviors for diabetes (healthy eating, monitoring, physical activity, risk reduction, healthy coping, problem solving and taking medication all the time) it doesn’t guarantee you a free ride. It is likely that at some point in life, something is going to go wrong and you will need medical assistance. And when you are in an emergency situation you may not be completely clear headed. If you are alone and unresponsive due to a hypoglycemic reaction, emergency workers may not know you have diabetes. Carrying identification indicating that you have diabetes can make a world of difference in getting the aid you need in a timely manner. It becomes much more crucial if you have type 1 diabetes or type 2 and take insulin. You should also seriously consider carrying diabetes identification if you are elderly, have a poor appetite and take sulfonuyreas. If you have hypoglycemic unawareness, the need to carry identification reaches critical mass. Hypoglycemic episodes can mimic intoxication or other medical emergencies. When your blood glucose is low, you need a source of quick-acting sugar to bring it up as soon as possible. You don’t want medical personnel wasting time trying to figure out what is wrong when they can use that time to give you needed glucose. Today you have choices; an engraved bracelet or a necklace identifying you as having diabetes is one way to go. These don’t have to be chintz looking. There are many styles available and many materials to choose from, including metals, leather, plastic and rubber. You can even combine medical alerts with time keeping; yes, there are watches that include a medical alert notification in their faces. No longer do Continue reading >>

Lifesaver Campaign For Law Enforcement

Lifesaver Campaign For Law Enforcement

Special License Plates and Drivers Licenses Help is here for Mississippians with diabetes! Thanks to a joint effort of the Mississippi Legislature, the State Tax Commission and the Diabetes Foundation of Mississippi, our license plate was launched in August of 2002 for people with diabetes. The DFM’s car tag helps alert law enforcement personnel when a driver may be experiencing a hypoglycemic episode and, consequently, driving erratically. The diabetes license plate signals to emergency personnel that the driver has diabetes, which, ultimately, could help save a life. The driver’s license has a purple star on the bottom of the license, indicating that the driver has diabetes. There is also a space on the license to list whether the individual is insulin dependent or takes oral medications. The license plate is also available to all Mississippi drivers with diabetes. The plate has the DFM’s logo on it and says “Defeat Diabetes.” There is no additional charge beyond your regular registration, taxes and fees for the license plates, if the car title is in the name of the driver who has diabetes. However, if the title is in someone else’s name, but the person with diabetes is the primary driver of the car, there is a charge of $31.00 for a diabetes license plate. Car tag prices may vary depending on the county. Forms: Continue reading >>
