According to the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America 30% of all adults and 40% of children in the United States live with allergies. Some of the most common allergies are to foods, medications, insect stings, environmental irritants, and latex. And living with an allergy can be complex. Allergens, symptoms and reactions vary greatly from person to person.

An accidental exposure to an allergen can lead to an allergic reaction. One type of reaction is analphylaxis – a severe, life-threatening allergic reaction. Anaphylaxis stimulates your immune system to release a flood of chemicals that can cause you to go into shock. If not treated promptly, it can be fatal. That’s why a MedicAlert ID is a critical component of an allergy action plan. During a severe allergic reaction, your custom engraved ID will alert others of your condition and can help save your life. A MedicAlert ID will:

  • Be your voice: If you can’t speak for yourself, your ID will speak for you - informing others about your allergies and any medications you are taking, and whether you are carrying an EPI pen.
  • Provide 24/7 emergency protection: Our team will relay all of our critical medical information to first responders in an emergency, no matter where or when it happens.
  • Keep you connected: You should never be alone in an emergency; that’s why MedicAlert will reach out to your emergency contacts when needed if you are unable to do so.
  • Enable you to live with confidence: The freedom to live your life with allergies, knowing that MedicAlert is there for you.
