I really should wear one! Since I am allergic to penicillin I have medical alert, BUT I never thought to add celiacs - or update my new latex allergy and seafood allergies
Really needed a reminder!

Yikes, now that IS scary. Hopefully, as more and more people need to be GF, the emergency medical staff will learn what is and isn't safe.

I had a heart attack and am grateful I had my faculties because they were trying to give me medication without knowing gf status. They didn't even know how to find out gf status. The only reference I knew was www.glutenfreedrugs.com but some of the meds weren't on there. Most everything was IV, but still ... I was schooling THEM. Scary.

Thanks for the post. It never occurred to me to put that on a bracelet, but that makes a lot of thanks.

The pounds are sliding off...

I have a RoadID and I love it. Though I need to get a new one, I got mine before I had to go GF. Thanks for bringing this up, I hadn't even thought about updating mine until now. Better do it before I forget! :)

I try to remember to wear my Road ID when I'm out and about. Here are some sources if you're interested; also, please share your own links if you have them. A lot of us have complicated medical needs and this eases my mind that the EMTs'll get it right if they need to.

I recently saw on the news that people are also tattooing their medical emergency info on their bodies, esp on the wrist where an EMT might look for a bracelet. Interesting.

www.roadid.com
(For instance: on my Road ID, I put name, birth yr., then next line: CELIAC: GLUTEN FREE MEDS. Emergency personnel'd then look up my serial no. and PIN on the back to find my personal medical history, doctors, contacts online.) There is a fee for this service (I look at it like insurance).

I found this one on Facebook, and haven't used them, but it looks helpful:

Have a great gluten-free day everyone! Hope we never need these!
