If you manage your diabetes well, you would rarely be in a position where you could not communicate with people around you. However, there may be times when your blood sugar is very low in the short term or very high for a prolonged period of time (hours or days). Or in the event of an accident you might be rendered unconscious. In these situations, it may be difficult to communicate specific information about your health issues to people trying to help you.

At times like this, a wallet card containing health information specific to you may be extremely important. This may be as simple as a 3x5 card on which you have listed:

  • Medications and dosages
  • Primary care doctor and phone number
  • Pharmacy and phone number
  • Emergency contact information

This may be helpful for any number of chronic conditions.
