    I was diagnosed T1 when I was 3. I have allergies to many metals including sterling silver! I can only wear 9ct/18ct yellow gold and Titanium. This ends up very expensive. I have a tattoo on my left inner wrist with the medical staff symbol and states type 1 Diabetic plus my NHS number.

    My medical info is on my phone. All anyone need do is click the Google Keep icon which has been renamed Emergency Info and everything is there. I am not bothered about anyone else looking at my medical information if I’m ill. Most other stuff is cloud based.

    Here is mine.......it is a stainless steel bracelet and comes with a tool to tool to remove links if you need it - Amazon have them. Also in frame is my Apple Watch with Spike on the complication, it syncs with my iPhone and MiaoMiao transmitter attached to my Libre. rsz_1img_1314.jpg

    I’m aware of that - all my tech is Apple. I was just letting you know there was a cheaper alternative to the Apple Watch with a good BG display.

    My pancreas was zapped 30 years ago, so Ghost Buster's not needed, but a miracle would be very welcomed :happy:
