    Hi everyone! I was diagnosed over a year ago now and still have not got myself an I.D bracelet, the ones that I have looked at are either too expensive or to plain, I want something I can wear day to day but isn't plain and boring any suggestions?

    Online site called Ice Gems offer ( at last time of looking) a wide range of great id and medical bracelets. Have a look, I think you'll find something to like.

    Have a look at diabeticjewellery.co.uk for something slightly more fun/less official
    You can buy the ones in stock or have them made to your spec.

    Do you have an existing bracelet you like to wear? If you do, why not have a disc from somewhere like medicalert.org.uk and add it to your favoured piece? They do sterling silver and 9ct gold, as well as the usual stainless and nickel plated stuff.

    As an aside, they also appear to do an exchange/update service whereby you send back an existing tag and they replace it with one bearing the new information. They then sell your "old" metalwork, which offsets the replacement cost.

    Thankfully, I don't feel the need to wear such an item, but this might be the route I would take if I did.
