‘Survival’ HypoCard campaign

A campaign has been launched urging everyone with diabetes to carry a card  featuring potentially life-saving advice.

The HypoCard, which can fit inside a wallet or purse, provides vital tips on what to do if the card carrier experiences hypoglycaemia. The card also details the symptoms of a hypo, so reading the card will inform people of the signs and symptoms to look out for, as well as provide recommended methods of treatment,

Launched by healthcare business GlucoRx with the tagline ‘one card can save your life’, the GlucoRx HypoCard has an important role in helping people with diabetes feel safer.

The team at GlucoRx behind the card campaign has urged people with diabetes to get in touch to order their free card.
