Toxic Food Medical Alert Bracelet

Who's going to look up a letter in a file if a patient ends up on the emergency table???

i think the medic-alert bracelet/necklace is what you want. If your list is too long to fit, you can list the most important and then add a special call-in number for a medicalert center that will list all your stuff. Personally, I wouldn't worry about intolerances. If you're worried about those, you'd be conscious or have family at your side. i think it's more a matter of what can you NOT survive if they administer something to you in an emergency....

Since you have seizures, I would DEFINITELY do a medical alert bracelet. Even if family is there with you, most likely they won't know all the specifics like you do. My stepmom has really severe hypoglycemia, and most likely wouldn't even survive being given a basic IV in the case of an accident. Her blood sugar dipped down into the high 30's when she did the fasting glucose test. At 30 you fall into a coma. My dad MADE her get a medical alert bracelet. You'd be surprised to see how many different types of medical alert jewlery there is.

I found a few items that allow additional space or other options.

This one, I think is the best idea of them all. So cool! You could put this on any bracelet or necklace -- 25 lines of info!!! It's a little thing the size of a nickel that when you look into it, you can see all that information - http://www.emergencynecklace.com/

So there are a lot of options other than the basic ones we've all seen.
