Tattoos Replacing Medical-alert Bracelets For Those With Diabetes, Other Ailments

December 17, 2013

American Medical Association guidelines don't address medical tattoos, but first responders now are trained to look for a medical bracelet or a medical alert necklace. "There have to be more standards if medical tattoos become a more common practice," said Dr. Saleh Aldasouqi, a Michigan State University endocrinologist who began studying the issue four years ago and writing about it in medical journals. "With a tattoo, would you see it?" he asked during a telephone interview. "You really have to be focused on saving a life. We want to make the job of emergency personnel easier. Seconds and minutes count when saving a life." A medical tattoo could help if someone lost a medical alert bracelet or necklace during a car crash, he said, adding, "If someone has a tattoo, we would say check that person's blood sugar immediately. It could be a lifesaving intervention, to give them blood sugar through an IV." Although Aldasou1i doesn't advocate tattoos, he leans more toward those that could be lifesaving, alerting medics to diabetes, hemophilia or rare blood types.
