Number One – Do You Need One?
For me the answer was obvious. My story is simple. I have been a diabetic for thirty years. I have written several hubs about diabetes as well as on my web site (KnowingDiabetes.com), I am also a kidney transplant patient. About three years ago I fell into a diabetic coma. The first thing the paramedics did was to check my medical id bracelet. A medical id may save your life one day. The money you invest on a good bracelet is worth every dime!

An online presence is a Perfect Complement to Your Medical ID. An online complement to your id could contain such info as ...
Medical conditions : Emergency contact information; Doctors' names; Insurance information; Documents (living wills, donor cards, EKGs, CTs, x rays, etc.)
This database ought to be accessible anytime through a secure online connection or a 24 hour emergency telephone line.
Number Three: Is It You? IT IS MORE THAN A MEDICAL ID IT IS YOU!
Essential information on medical conditions, allergies, prescriptions, and emergency contacts can be engraved onto the surface of a medical identification jewelry piece. Medical IDs are recommended by physicians and healthcare organizations throughout the world. Wearing a medical ID offers you and your loved ones peace of mind.
IT MUST BE OF EXCELLENT QUALITY AND MADE TO LAST!
My first bracelet was inexpensive as I did not want to invest any money on a bracelet.It looked cheap, and it only lasted for a few months. Then I purchased a handsome, sturdy, made to last Id, and it has lasted! I am now VERY satisfied.
Remember, if you don’t wear it, it will do you no good. Budget is important, but I found that I needed something I could wear FOREVER, and this made the price of a good peace of jewelry worth it to me. This is your decision.
Number Four: Shop Around!
- I will make three recommendations that I ask you to consider, but shop around for the best deal for you. The most important thing to remember is that it might save your life.
- My Pick: Where can you get a high quality Medic- Alert Bracelet? As you shop around you might want- and should consider American- Medical ID'.American Medical ID bracelets are high quality jewelry and meet all the criterion I have laid out here.
Number Five: Wear it - Everywhere and all the time!
Most accidents happen at home - So wear it all times. I do and I am glad that I did. It is a life saver!
