Houston, TX (PRWEB) January 31, 2012
Celebrity chef, Paula Deen, recently announced that she has type 2 diabetes. This announcement came after 3 years after her diagnosis. Deen confirmed, "I was diagnosed three years ago during a regular physical exam with my doctor, that I had type 2 diabetes. I am here today to let the world know that it is not a death sentence. I am working with a very reputable pharmaceutical company. I'm working on a new program called 'Diabetes in a New Light.' You can go to our website. I'm going to be there for you and help you manage every day of your life with this, because it can be done."
In its mission to help promote the life saving nature of medical IDs, American Medical ID has offered a free diabetes identification bracelet to Paula Deen.
Diabetes bracelets or diabetic jewelry is probably the last thing on anybody's mind when dealing with diabetes. After all, bracelets, necklaces and anklets may not seem to serve any purpose beyond being decorative. However, when it comes to chronic diseases like diabetes, being identified as having a medical condition is often necessary.
This is why diabetes bracelets are often worn not just to inform anyone about the wearer's health status but also to alert people, such as rescuers, first-aid staff and medical professionals of the appropriate action to perform when the wearer is involved in an emergency.
Since 1994, Houston-based, employee owned and operated, American Medical ID has created high quality, customized medical identification jewelry to meet one’s everyday lifestyle. The medical IDs are available with various styles of bracelets, necklaces, and sports bands, in gold, gold-filled, sterling silver, stainless steel, titanium and nylon. Each ID is custom fitted and personalized with complimentary engraving. For more information about American Medical ID, visit http://www.IdentifyYourself.com.
