    stupid question here, where does a person get medical alert bracelets??

    I will be turning 53 soon, (not that that applies to anything) but it has been mentioned to me before that I should have and wear a medical alert bracelet, I use a cath daily to void, and given that I'm not planning on leaving anytime soon (13 plus year survivor and counting) that maybe I should have one for that just in case time that I need emergency care. any help is greatly appreciated.

      Google "medical alert bracelet" to order one online or go to any jewelry or engraving store. They can engrave an ID bracelet to say anything you want it to say.

      You are wise to think ahead. They can be ordered by mail and Ticklingcancer provided links.

      I would like to sugggest a better way to manage your health records than a medical bracelet. And it once saved my life. As a disclaimer, I am now an investor with the company.

      Use Minerva to organize emergency health information by preparing an Emergency Health Record to store on your Minerva Flash Drive, iphone, ipad or mobile device, or by printing out Emergency Cards to store inside your wallet alongside your driver’s license.

      With Minerva Health Manager’s comprehensive software solution for personal health record management, you can finally catalog, manage, and store your personal health records in one convenient place - your own personal computer. Your Minerva personal health records can include your complete health history of medical tests, diagnoses, conditions, x-rays, medications, allergies, and much more.

      In addition, Minerva Health Manager allows you to manage Family Health Information, so you can record hereditary health conditions in your family tree and work with healthcare professionals to take the right steps to help maintain your good health.

      Visit www.MyMinerva.com/LLS and 100% of the profits will be dontated to the Leukemia Lymphoma Society.

      The only stupid question is the one which goes unasked.

      Glad others had answers for you. I'm a bit your senior and don't have any sort of medical ID.

      There is no such thing as a stupid question. I know after working in a doctors office that most have brochures in their offices to order medical alert bracelets. Also a lot of pharmacies either have the brochures or actually sell the bracelets. Hope this helps. Take care.

      As it happens, I just went to a Rite-Aid for an unrelated prescription and there was a brochure on the counter where I dropped the prescription off.

      The Medic Alert sells them. I have no room left to engrave anything more on mine, but I too have to use a catheter to void and would love to add it to my bracelet, which already says. I may be in anaphalic shock if I get stung, I can't take Vicodin and I had an engraver add that I have no spleen. I never thought to add the catheter info but sure wish I had.
