What Should You Put on an Addison’s Disease Medical ID?
It is always best to consult with your doctor or specialist to decide what to engrave on your Addison’s medical ID. In the event that this is not possible, we have taken advice from the lovely doctors at Concierge Medical (the multi award-winning private GP service for the Cotswolds and surrounding areas) and recommend the following:
As a minimum, you should put the following on your medical ID:
Addison’s Disease OR Risk of adrenal crisis, steroid dependent.
An ICE (in-case-of-emergency) phone number.
You may also want to include the following:
Hydrocortisone injection (if you carry an injection kit).
Any other severe medical conditions (including allergies).
Any other medications you may be on.
“See medical card” (if you choose to carry a medical ID card in your phone case or wallet).
If you choose a medical id bracelet that can be engraved on both the front and the back, we recommend that you engrave your medical information on the front and your personal information (name and ICE) on the back.
General advice on engraving:
information should relate to conditions not otherwise discoverable by examination of an unconscious or incapacitated patient.
Important medications should be listed.
Information should be relevant to life-saving or emergency treatment.
Avoid using general terms, e.g. “Allergies: bee stings, nuts” is much more useful than just “Allergies”.
Addison's Disease Wristbands
It's advisable for Addison’s disease sufferers to wear, or keep with them at all times, some form of medical identification in case of an emergency,
A wristband can be a handy way of doing this as they’re comfortable and convenient to wear 24/7, indoors and out. We have several colours to choose from and a variety of sizes to suit children and adults. Our Velcro and Silicone ranges are great if you like to stay active.
Addison's Disease Bracelets
We have a huge range of medical id bracelets for you to choose from. Whether you’re looking for robust active wear bracelets or a discreet and elegant option we have something to suit you.
We also offer watch style SOS Talismans that allow the wearer to write their details onto an information strip and store inside the SOS capsule, great for individuals whose details or medications might change frequently.
As well as a bracelet or wristband, some Addison’s disease sufferers wear a necklace as an alternative or additional way of carrying vital medical information. Our range of engravable dog tags are a good option if you require multiple lines of personalisation as they can fit a minimum of 5 lines of engraving.
Addison's Disease Medical Bags and ID Card
If you regularly carry a hydrocortisone injection kit, our medicine bags and carry cases are perfect for keeping your medication safe. They're also great for traveling and when you go on holiday.
As well as your Addison’s disease alert jewellery, it's also a good idea to have a medical ID card for your wallet or phone. This allows you to carry more detailed information with you, such as your address and NHS number. If you purchase one of our ID cards alongside a necklace or bracelet, we normally advise having 'see medical card' engraved on your chosen piece of jewellery.
