A Lifestyle Without Limits
As a runner, Angelica Jacobs hesitated about competing once diagnosed with type 1 diabetes. Strenuous activity impacted her blood glucose levels — and first responders wouldn’t know about her condition.
“I didn’t want to risk it. I went only to cheer on my friends this year at Tough Mudder,” she explains. “Once there, paramedics said they were well-aware of MedicAlert.
They told me they always look for MedicAlert IDs when responding to an emergency. So, I’ve signed up to run the race next year!”
Angelica’s diagnosis no longer limits her active lifestyle.
“I get lots of compliments on my Swarovski ELEMENTS IDs,” Angelica exclaims. “I couldn’t decide which one I liked better, so I got an assortment!” More than 150 ID styles are available at www.medicalert.ca.
