A food allergy diagnosis is life-changing. Avoiding the allergen is not always easy, and despite constant vigilance, accidental exposures can occur. Sever allergic reactions (known as anaphylaxis) can be life-threatening, so every second counts.
When your child has a food allergy, everyday events like birthday parties, field trips, and eating in the school cafeteria can be hazardous to his or her health. Moreover, those with certain types of allergies (like food allergies) are at risk for a sudden, potentially life-threatening allergic reaction – which is why every second counts in a life-threatening allergic reaction
Whether you have a food allergy yourself or are the parent of a child with food allergies, the MyVoice program is there for you to help communicate your vital medical information in an emergency situation. MedicAlert Foundation stores your vital medical information (also known as Emergency Medical Information Record - EMIR®), and links it to your personalized medical ID. First responders are trained to recognize MedicAlert medical IDs in emergencies, and know to contact our 24/7 Live Emergency Response Service to obtain your medical information. Our services ensure emergency responders and hospital staff get your up-to-date medical information, the moment they need it, to make informed decisions about your treatment and care. In addition to our 24/7 Emergency Response service, we also offer 24/7 Family Notification and 24/7 Physician Notification service.
FARE recommends individuals with food allergies use a medical ID, a practice that is also recommended in the food allergy clinical guidelines developed by an expert panel sponsored by the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases.
