I believe wearing a medical ID is important. The condition sleeves from MyID are my favorite right now. I wear my Apple Watch almost everywhere, even when playing basketball and exercising, and these condition sleeves slide right onto the band. MyID also offers various styles and solutions depending on what you need or like.
Transcend glucose gels are my go-to solution for treating low blood sugar, especially in two situations. The first is when I’m exercising and the second is at night when I’m trying to sleep. In both cases, I don’t want to spend time chewing on multiple glucose tabs. So instead, I tear the top of this and squirt in a quick 15g of carbs. Then I’m back in the game (or in dreamland) in seconds.
I am a big believer in medical ID. I wear one almost all the time. I have a few MyID Condition Sleeves on my Apple Watch bands and I love them. But I also learned about another interesting approach that I want to tell you about. I’d love to hear what you think of it. I’m also curious if there are any first responders out there who have heard of this or might use it.
