I have been looking into a medical alert bracelet/neckalace for Dylan. He is thinking he wants dog tags, but someone that I know who is on our local EMS said that he should really go with a bracelet because they rarely look for a neckalce. Anybody got any ideas? Also what would I put on it? His nephrologist said that hypertension needs to be the first thing along with steroid use and his allergies. Help please.

exactly what is on the tags, needs to be discussed with your doctor.

we had a discussion on here about 1 or 2 months ago.
some ladies liked the idea of getting it tattooed on there wrist.
maybe dylan would think this was "cool".

Lol! Maybe if he was a little older. I remember reading some of the posts. So many choices. Agh!!!

Leah,
I gave a link to the site where I bought mine in the thread that Mari mentioned. They have lots of styles, from inexpensive to extravagant.
I've been very happy with mine. It "lives" on a ringstand in the kitchen with my watch, and I grab both of them as I go out the door.
Hugs,
Marla

Hi Leah,

Here is a link to the site where I have gotten bands for Keith. They have a pocket in them where you can put emergency contact information as well as a list of medical conditions and medications. Hope this helps.

Take care,
Beth

I use a similar one as Beth described but only when I run.
