Why You Should Wear a Medical Bracelet: Hope Paige Medical ID Bracelet (Giveaway)

by Jennifer Sikora

We never wish to be in a position where there is a medical emergency. But every second counts so it is crucial to be prepared for anything.

If you do have certain health conditions, one of the simplest ways to make sure that you will be taken care of in an emergency situation is to wear a medical ID bracelet or necklace. Wearing a medical bracelet gives healthcare providers the information they need quickly to treat your condition.

In recognition of American Diabetes Month during November, Hope Paige will be giving away three (3) medical ID bracelets to readers. Through Medical ID Marketplace, Hope Paige has offered functional and stylish medical ID bracelets since 2003. Medical alert jewelry offers people the opportunity to protect themselves without feeling like their condition is branded on their skin.


Nearly 26 million American have diabetes, which can lead to a number of other complications and conditions. Many times, diabetic shock leaves patients unable to respond, so it is vital that loved ones and medical personnel know how to respond. Medical ID bracelets can help make the most of valuable time in a healthcare emergency.

Enter To Win

Hope Paige’s medical ID bracelets can offer fashionable peace of mind for anyone who suffers from severe allergies, heart conditions, diabetes and many more conditions.

Now that my daughter is 17, and driving on her own, it is imperative that she wears a medical ID to let any potential emergency responders know that she has type 1 diabetes, an eosinophilic blood disorder and a whole host of other medical conditions. I am always looking for new and trendy medical ids that she will be happy to wear, and that are well made so they last a long time! Thank you for your awesome designs!

I need one for myself. I am a diabetic, but more than that, I have had to be resuscitated before. My doctor then told me that every time I have surgery I will get fluid on my lungs and that surgeons need to be notified before hand. A bracelet with this information could save my life.
Thanks

It does not matter what your medical condition is. You just need something to alert EMS that you have a condition, especially if you cannot do so. A nurse told me about how not having an ID bracelet almost killed her. So I’ve worn one since then.

I would give this to my son. He has worn his medical id on his shoe since he was diagnosed with an endocrine disorder at 4 months old. He is finally getting to an age where he could wear jewelry. We have been searching for something comfortable for him to wear. I am really glad you are doing this. This jewelry can really be a life-saver.

Hello there! I know this is somewhat off topic but I was wondering which blog platform are you using for
this site? I’m getting sick and tired of Wordpress
because I’ve had problems with hackers and I’m looking at alternatives for another platform.
I would be great if you could point me in the direction of
a good platform.
