Diabetes can affect all areas of your life, so it is important to consider your diabetes at all times. This includes letting medical personnel know that you are a diabetic. Diabetic bracelets are the easiest way to make it obvious that you are a diabetic. When people see your bracelet, they will know what type of diabetes you have so that any care provided can be tailored to this.

This tells first responders and other people that you are a diabetic to help to ensure the safest treatment possible during a medical emergency.
