And if someone finds you unconscious the paramedics will have to
figure out the most likely things that are wrong with you. I hope for
your sake you at least carry something in your wallet that indicates
you have diabetes. We have a folding card in our wallets that are
distributed by the local medical centers. On the card is pertinent
information such as my doctor's name, the fact that I have diabetes
and hypertension, and a complete list of medications and supplements
that I take.
I did not want to pay the high price for the MedicAlert bracelet so I
bought a good quality ID bracelet. I had them engrave my name in it
and just below that in small letters it says, "Diabetic". When I had a
TIA a couple years ago the first thing the paramedic did when he got
here was look at the bracelet. He complimented me for having it.
Let us all pray that by the end of 2006 there will no longer
be a reason for my sigline to contain these statistics.
The following information is given with the utmost respect
for the armed forces and civilians who have died in the
current war in Iraq. According to http://icasualties.org/oif/
The number of Americans killed in Iraq as of Jan. 1, 2006 is 2,180.
United Kingdom = 98 Other = 103
