Carrie Hayward, 34, from London (pictured right), was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes at the age of 19. Always keeping up with the latest trends and wanting to look stylish, she hated the idea of medical ID jewellery.
“I avoided medical ID at all costs because the jewellery I came across was really ugly looking. I used to have a talisman necklace and just hated it – it didn’t suit me and I never wore it,” says Carrie.
But after traveling to work each day on the tube and getting serious hypos in the hot weather, the young lawyer decided she needed an extra safety precaution.
