Annual.

I believe you can order the jewelry without subscribing to the online service. Check the website and see.

I as discussing this topic with my pharmacist & thought I would do a little research. I have celiac disease but with a severe skin reaction & he felt that I should get a bracelet because allergic reactions can & do escalate. And although it is rare gluten can cause Anaphylactic Shock. Better safe than sorry.

Just read something about the pretty jewelry ones. I wish I could remember where I read it. It said that the paramedics & ER staff don't always know they are med alert bracelets. Some are to subtle. They suggested you make sure it's obvious what the bracelet s for.I
