A Medical ID bracelet speaks for you when you are unable of doing so for yourself. Not every disease is visible.
Medical professionals cannot treat something about which they are unaware.
Medical professionals are most likely to consider a condition about which they are aware, familiar, and comfortable diagnosing.
Medical professionals are less likely to consider a condition about which they are unaware, unfamiliar, or uncomfortable diagnosing.
People with rare medical conditions are less likely to receive the proper care if they are unable to communicate symptoms characteristic of their diseases.
People with medical conditions who cannot communicate verbally have a simple solution to avoid continued misdiagnosis and to receive the care they need: wearing a medical ID bracelet.
If you have an illness or rare disease, get a medical ID bracelet. If you know someone with an illness or rare disease, stress to them the importance of wearing a medical ID bracelet. The choice to do so should not be a source of questioning or debate. It simply needs to happen.
