Amy Tenderich, author of the Diabetes Mine blog, writes about the difficulties that the law enforcement has in recognizing someone with diabetic hypoglycemia. I have been thinking about this for quite some time. While I have had only a few scary lows I often wonder about what could happen if I experience a low while driving and cause an accident. Will I be taken to a hospital for treatment or will I end up dying in some prison cell because the cops think I am drunk or on drugs? I have a medical ID alert bracelet that lets medical personnel know that I am both diabetic and allergic to penicillin. What is they don't see it?
