  • medical bracelet

    It has been brought to my attention that I should have a medical ID bracelet with my condition and steroid use...for emergency responders to be aware of. I will be doing some traveling, so maybe I should think about it.
    Anyone have these and is it necessary or actually useful? What else should go on it and how would you go about getting one?
    thanks,
    Kerry

    Hi Kerry,

    It's something I've thought of myself a few times, but haven't. I should though, just for the steroid use really, I wouldn't be as concerned about the rest of my meds.

    Here is a previous thread on the subject and there are a few links to other threads in that too

      Im not sure about your system but here I used to have a steriod card. They just wrote the dose on it. At the time though I was changing so much that it became a crossed out mess and as a young person I didnt really have any interest keeping it safe so no idea where it is now. A medical braclet may be more useable

        Good link Nellie, thanks.
        Kerry I think you should get one, a very good idea.

          I carry a Medic Alert bracelet with my condition and all my meds that I take. I take allot . It really helps first responders. I live in a small community, so, I do not wear it locally. If I leave for a day or longer I wear it all the time. They are really good about keeping your information current as long as you call and let them know the changes.
