Diabetes does not make it presence known on the face of diabetic children, they look as normal and healthy as every other child around them, however, their blood sugar levels, which is unseen by the naked eye, is a condition that is life-threatening, especially if teachers and other adults that will be called are unaware that your child is diabetic!
Any child that gets into trouble with low or high blood sugar and is unable to speak for themselves needs to have the medical information available in order to assist emergency medical personnel to administer the right treatment, and to contact you to alert you to the situation.
If your child is diabetic, it is truly a life-giving act of love to make wearing a Diabetes ICE Band from ICE-TAGS a part of their life from a very early age, so that it becomes second nature and as natural as wearing clothing is.
Children with diabetes should wear their Diabetes ICE band at all times, and that includes wearing it while they sleep, and, if they understand that it is out of sheer love that you are teaching them the importance of wearing a diabetes ICE band, especially if they are only diagnosed as having diabetes in junior school, it will be easier for them to accept the life-saving measure that their band really is!
