Has anyone purchased a medical alert bracelet for CD?  If so, where did you get it.

I just have one that says wallet card on the back and all my info is on a card in my wallet. I just saw a type of bracelet on TV the other day that has all your med info stored on it . It plugs into a computer that the ambulance has and all the info is there for them. Have not seen it on the net yet though.

I bought the charm that says see wallet card and made my own beaded bracelets. When I changed jobs I stopped wearing it but I have the charm on my key chain now.


you can make your free card at the website below. I use that and laminate it with a machine I have. It is in the front of my wallet. Even if the id tag is not seen most would look in the wallet if I was unconscious.

I bought one of those stainless steel stretch bracelets on eBay. The seller has a large choice of disease charms. He had one for Crohn's and one for Pred, so when I'm on Pred I can pop on the pred charm, or remove it when I'm not! They are cheap and good quality.

A shameless plug for Lazrart on eBay:

I bought one of their custom tags for a friend of mine with hearing disability along with a special implant so MRIs are out of the question for her. Due to her condition, she might be found unconscious, and apparently unable to communicate when she comes to. There aren't really off-the-shelf tags for such a series of conditions, but Lazrart made one for just a few bucks.

Very affordable for the services they provide.

tmlindsey- i purchased medical alert buttons (after considerable shopping around) for both my elderly parents. this has given me peace of mind, as well as emergency help for them at the push of a button. anyway, best of luck to everyone in their search!

I wear one. This is where I get mine.

I do not put medications on it as they change to much. I keep my medications list in my wallet under my driver's license.

I used to have a SOS talisman as too many illnesses/diseases and couple of medicine allergies so too much to fit on medi alert ones. Then I ran out of space to put everything on the paper bit inside the SOS talisman so now have a medic alert bracelet that is connected to an online medical registry that I can update whenever I need to and has a little charm attached to the bracelet with my access file reference number on it so anyone can see my medical history and current prescriptions on it if needed.

I got mine through a mail order card at CVS. I had them engrave on the front. Cronh's Disease and Diabetes see wallet card. It was not too expensive either. Some whwere @ $40.00. Look in CVS next to the pharmacist or just ask the pharmacist. I hope this helps.

I got mine from I liked this site as it had one with velcro strap with stainless plate. quick service. the stainless steal is very good quality. I wear it for my remicade but also for my coumidin (blood thinner) and the rest of 12 medications I take each day!! Mine states my name, my three main medical conditions and states "see wallet for current medications.
