    RoadID makes a great wristband that I wear whenever I am cycling, and frequently at other times. You can put a lot of info right on it or have a number emergency personnel can call for more detailed info. They come in a variety of colors and styles.

    I just started wearing a medic alert bracelet after 39 years with t1 because I travel a lot now alone. I asked the flight attendants just coming back from Albuquerque this weekend if they recognized the symbol. They said they did, they got trained on it, but the stewardess who has a brother in law with t1 said they don’t get told if you’re blood sugar’s really low you can even have seizures.

    I also wonder if/how we could educate the general public about the medical alert symbol since it may be an ordinary person who passes your body lying in the street.

    As for design, get creative. I bought a white and yellow gold plaque and then put a beautiful bracelet on it I found in a jewelry store in NYC’s Chinatown. Hoping for something that screams “help me” and “don’t I have good taste!”
