Medical ID bracelet's?

On Monday morning, Fisher was especially charged up over a sports band made of black-and-red titanium fiber. It had just made its debut over the weekend on the company's website (www.hopepaige.com) and Facebook page. "We sold over 200, which is a lot," Fisher marveled. "This is going to be crazy big." Actually, that's also an apt description for Hope Paige's growth since its founding in December 2003. In just the last 2 1/2 years - amid a field of three major U.S. competitors - its payroll has grown from five to 15 employees, and its bracelets will soon have a presence in 10,000 pharmacies, under the business name Medical ID Marketplace.

Apparently, I'm not alone. According to the experts I consulted, most people with diabetes don't wear medical alert identification. But we're putting ourselves - and sometimes those around us - in danger by neglecting this simple purchase. The Risks Brock Ryan, a medic in the Atlanta area for 14 years who now serves as medical coordinator for Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation events, has tended to many diabetic drivers after hypoglycemia -related auto accidents.
