Some medical conditions require immediate responses. However, there are times when you may not be able to communicate with emergency responders or medical personnel. If you are with someone who knows you, they can speak for you; however, this may not always be possible. How, then, will the people who can save you know how to respond? One solution is a specially engraved bracelet, commonly known as a medical alert bracelet. First responders are trained to keep an eye out for these so that they know how to render aid. If you suffer from one of these three conditions, you should make sure you have something like this in case of an emergency.

You may be out and about when suddenly your sugar plummets. Before you can give yourself a dose of insulin, you may fall unconscious. Type 1 diabetes us a serious condition that can result in death if not treated properly. If you don't have a bracelet, a medical id dog tag will also do the trick. It should have your medical condition and tell people you are insulin dependent.

2. Allergies

If you are in a car accident and lose consciousness, you can't let alert medical personnel to the medicine you're allergic to. One of the most common drug allergies is penicillin.
