The symptoms of hypoglycemia can often be confused with other problems, especially by people unfamiliar with diabetes, such as law enforcement officers. For a person with diabetes, carrying a medical idenfication product can mean the difference between receiving prompt, appropriate attention for emergency hypoglycemia and being confused with someone who is drunk.

Wisely, 62% of respondents report wearing medical identification jewelry most or all of the time. Adding in people who sometimes carry medical identification products, jewelry products are preferred to wallet cards 75% to 9%.
