    What does your medic alert bracelet read

    I was wondering if my medic alert bracelet should adrenal insufficiency or Addisons Disease give steroids. I thought I would take a survey of everyone before ordering my bracelet.

    Mine says "Addisons Disease on Steroids" then it gives my id # that allows them to contact my doc and family. HeatherW

    Medic Alert advised me to put "adrenal insufficiency". The rep said if you put a specific name for the adrenal disorders which are very rare that there is a chance the paramedic might not know what the disease is or what organ system it is concerned with. I have so much wrong with me my bracelet doesn't have room for everything, so Medic Alert is suppose to instruct medical personnel to "give stress dose cortisol".
