    The only one Carson will wear is from www.coolmedid.com And the best part is they're really inexpensive.

    This place is great, they have the following

    ALERT! T1 Diabetic
    ALERT! insulin dependent diabetic
    ALERT! on insulin pump

    They have 2 sizes but only these colours. My son has been wearing one for over 6 months now and it looks as good as the day he put it on.

    Mediband.com I think it is - they're part of a company called handband (australian)

    As a girl, I don't know if she is into dog tags, but my Halo lover sure is!

    I use a RoadID, the interactive one so I have my whole medical history on the website.

    The actual ID band says my name, IDDM & asthma.

    www.roadid.com

    Francesca,
    Abby is still wearing the one you sent her, and it looks as good as the day it came out of the envelope! It's been at least 6mos.
    Thanks again!

    We have and will only use medic alert. My husband is a police officer and said that in an emergency, medic alert is one of the best. Make sure that what ever you are using, looks like a medical info tag, not just jewelry or there is a big chance that it will be overlooked. We talked with the fire dept and emergency first responders in the area and they said the same thing.

    Sam has had his medic alert since he was 3 and it has not broken once. All the info is updated by us, via the computer and it automatically transmitted to the medic alert computer. A first respoder just dials the number and all of Sam's info comes up. I always thought that this was handy in case mom or dad could not talk for him in an emergency.

    My brother is a Medic, he and I also recommend www.medicalert.org There are silver bracelets that are VERY sturdy, for the writing there are LOTS of colors to choose from. More girly ones too:D
