Diabetic Zone Tools in various languages. Zone Tools use the colors of a traffic light to guide patients in managing chronic health problems. The tool is divided into green (“all clear”), yellow (“caution”), and red (“medical alert”) zones. For each zone, the tool provides signs and symptoms and allows the health care provider to give specific instructions for managing the condition, including guidance on when to seek emergency medical assistance.
