Re: Disaster preparedness with health issues
Emergency Preparedness Products has a great Diabetic Ecase that is designed specifically for the situations you are describing. It is great for travel as well. You can order with inserts specifically designed for either Type I or II diabetics. The cases are about the size of a lunchbox, sturdy and bright yellow so easy to spot. I think it is worth looking into. I got one for my dad last Christmas after purchasing it at a fundraiser. He has found it perfect for his needs. They are a bit more expensive, but in my opinion, the quality makes them worth it.
They have asthma and cardiac kits coming out soon. As you can tell from some of my other postings, I'll be getting the asthma one when it comes out.
As for a general first aid kit, the American Red Cross has some prepackaged kits as well as some good emergency preparedness kits with first aid kits inside them. Your local chapter should have some already on hand.
Asthma, Allergies, severe LPR/GERD, Anemia, TMJD, Hearing Loss, Ulnar Impaction Syndrome, Shoulder Impingement, Ankle ligament repair, Benign Joint Hypermobility
