Medical Identification Products

Medical Identification products can help ensure proper treatment of an insulin reaction in an emergency when your child is away from you. And if you travel, you shouldn't be without some form of medical information product. Products with the [RECOMMENDED!] are recommended.

In addition to a medical identification product, CWD highly recommends the Quick-Fix Keychain, which holds four round glucose tablets and can be attached to your key ring. Everyone with type 1 diabetes who drives should have this product.

Readers from Europe should look at the Gluco Carry, which is designed for glucose tablets available in your countries.
