The symptoms of hypoglycemia can often be confused with other problems, especially by people unfamiliar with diabetes, such as law enforcement officers. For a person with diabetes, carrying a medical idenfication product can mean the difference between receiving prompt, appropriate attention for emergency hypoglycemia and being confused with someone who is drunk. Medical identification is truly something that you should not leave home without!
