Having a health issue that requires precautions shouldn't mean the world has to know about it. Your health matters are private, but in times of a car accident or other emergency, they must be made public. “Lauren’s Hope” is a line of contemporary, interchangeable medical ID bracelets for anyone living with a health ailment or undergoing medical treatment that calls for an ID to be worn at all times.

Just between you and me, in all my years with diabetes (thirty-five and a half to be exact) I've never worn a medic alert bracelet. While I'm no fashionista, I don't like the way they look, and I don't like the reference I make in my head - "damaged goods." Then, too, just to be clear, I've never (yet) had an incident where I needed one.

You don't necessarily have to sacrifice style when wearing medical identification. Lauren's Hope, of Kansas City, Missouri, announces its new Medical ID Bracelets that combine fashion and practicality. Originally designed for a 13-year-old with diabetes who refused to wear other ID bands on the market, the Lauren's Hope bracelets are made with multi-colored beads and an unobtrusive identification tag. Five styles are available, each made with mineral, crystal or metal beads that range in color from blue, red, white, gold, green and black. The prices range from $39.95 to $65.

I recently got together with a new friend named Chris Newman. Chris is the product manager at Disetronic, a maker of insulin pumps. We met on an airplane coming home from a diabetes conference. I had been there representing this magazine, and he was there representing Disetronic. Like me, he has type 1 diabetes and is the father of young children. We compared notes on how we manage our diabetes.
