Diabetes Awareness Made Easy | The Card Project UK
Diabetes, a chronic disease marked by high blood sugar levels, can sometimes be unpredictable and cause a variety of symptoms, making life with diabetes a continual learning process. There's a persistent need for careful management and alertness. Despite this, there may be times when a diabetic episode takes place in the presence of strangers who are unaware of how to assist. Our Non-Insulin Dependent Diabetes Awareness Card is designed precisely for these scenarios.
This card provides instructions to bystanders on how to respond if you faint, display confusion, or worst-case, become unconscious. It clarifies that you're not insulin-dependent, a significant piece of information if you end up in a hospital. A consistent life with diabetes often involves carrying necessary items such as blood glucose meters, insulin pens, or glucose tablets. Adding our credit card-sized Diabetes Awareness Card to that list is straightforward; it will slip easily into your wallet or purse.
Made from biodegradable plastic, it's an environmentally-friendly accessory to your diabetes management routine. Personalisation is key: the card features the holder's name on the front and two emergency contacts on the back, ensuring help is always within reach.
