Florida Firm Debuts New Line of Medical ID Jewelry To Coincide With National Diabetes Awareness Month Event
November 13, 2010 (PRLEAP.COM) Health NewsWorld Diabetes Day, which is to be observed November 14th, marks the initial day the new line will be offered on the Medics Alert Bracelets website.
In addition to medical ID bracelets and charms the firm also markets a wide range of custom jewelry crafted by manufactures and artisans located both here in the United States and abroad.
"With greater awareness of the need for emergency services to be alerted to medical conditions in emergency situations-there is a corresponding desire for choices in medical ID bracelets," says company spokesperson Valerie Framo.
"Not everyone wishes to wear the old style stamped metal wrist and neckwear so common in the past. Medical ID bracelets can and should add grace to function."
With the rise in obesity among our population and the increased incidence of diabetes that National Diabetes Awareness Month is meant to call public attention to-it is likely that the market for stand-out jewelry will grow, notes Framo.
Indeed, the American Diabetes Association projects that the percent of Americans affected by the disease will rise above eight percent within the next decade.
Much of this is due to the aging of the population and the increased incidence of type 2 diabetes among seniors.
"We're proud to bring together some of the most exquisite lines in functional bracelets and charms, not only for diabetics but also for others who could benefit,".
Her company anticipates that additional lines will be added as more retailers join in promoting their wares, especially in those regions where seniors are most numerous.
