According to the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases (NIDDK), diabetes affected 25.8 million people in the U.S. as off 2011. This means that 8.3% of Americans live with this disease. For that reason, we have seen a high demand for medical alert bracelets and diabetic bracelets that can represent a life-saving choice for many.
There are many medical alert and diabetic bracelets available on the web nowadays. Some are customizable, some are made of gold and silver, and some are just plain unattractive. For this reason and based on the brilliant recommendation of a loyal customer, the Ionloop team has decided to create its own stylish medical alert diabetic bracelets.
Of course, Ionloop diabetic bracelets contain all the technology of our other collections like our Ion Regeneration Technology™, to neutralize the destructive effects of our modern day environment and powerful magnets aligned in the magnet case in an alternating polarity ± alignment to enhance the natural effects of the magnet therapy. The fashionable and discrete design features a medical alert symbol and the word “diabetic” to easily point out to emergency responders of one’s condition.
If you are thinking of gifting this cool bracelet to a loved one and would like to learn more about Diabetes, here’s some information about the two types of diabetes, extracted from the American Diabetes Association (ADA):
Type 1 diabetes is a genetic condition, most commonly found in children and young adults. In this type of diabetes the body does not produce insulin. According to the American Diabetes Association, it represents only 5% of all people with diabetes in the US and can be easily managed, allowing “young children with type 1 diabetes […] to manage their condition and live long, healthy, happy lives.”
Type 2 diabetes is the most common kind of diabetes and also the most dangerous. It afflicts 26.9% of US residents ages 65 and older and can be caused by a combination of genetic factors and lifestyle choices. The ADA states that many people diagnosed with type 2 diabetes can keep their blood glucose at a healthy level with oral medications, a healthy meal plan, and exercise.
More than a life-saving accessory, our new medical alert diabetic bracelets are a fashion accessory and a tool for a healthier lifestyle. For more information about diabetes, please go to www.diabetes.org or click here to view our diabetic bracelets.
