Millions of people wear medical ID necklaces, bracelets, anklets, and charms every day, and they all have a reason for doing so. Here at Lauren’s Hope, because we make fully customizable, interchangeable medical ID bracelets, we see all sorts of different engraving requests. Here’s our list of the top ten reasons people wear medical ID jewelry.
Motility disorders are topics people often don’t discuss because they impact the gastrointestinal tract, and that means talking about digestion and elimination. But many people do suffer from motility disorders of the four main parts of the digestive tract:
Adrenal disorders are a complex set of disorders, and they’re rather uncommon, which makes them even less understood by the general public. Here at Lauren’s Hope, though, we hear from customers regularly who need medical ID jewelry for a number of adrenal disorders:
Having a vision impairment, which is sometimes called “low vision,” means that you are unable to see well even with medication, surgery, glasses, or contacts. There is a wide range of vision impairment, with some people having mild cases and others much more severe. Typically, vision impairment and blindness impact the elderly as the result of eye diseases that are also associated with old age:
Living with food allergies is not easy for adults. It’s even tougher when your child has food allergies because kids have a harder time identifying safe and unsafe foods and avoiding cross-contaminated surfaces. However, there are some simple steps you can take to help safeguard your child and avoid allergic reactions.
If you follow Lauren’s Hope on Facebook, you know that Kayla, a 21-year-old college student in Woodland, is one of our most outspoken Brand Ambassadors, often answering other customers’ questions, engaging with our team, and generally just being awesome. Kayla always enters Free Stuff Friday, is quick to respond when we put out an opinion poll on Facebook, and has been one of our most demonstrative fans since buying her first Lauren’s Hope medical ID bracelet in July of 2010.
More and more often, it seems that everyday people are becoming caregivers. Our parents are living longer and may need late-life caretaking. Increasing numbers of children are developing life-threatening food allergies, and 1 in every 88 children has some form of autism. Whether you’re a parent caretaker of a young child, a grown child of a parent needing care, or both, we highly recommend that you wear an ICE ID.
Adrenal insufficiency is a condition resulting from insufficient hormone production by the adrenal glands, which are located on top of each kidney. Typically, these glands produce three types of hormones (glucocorticoids, mineralocorticoids, and androgens), and when they fail to do so, the result is adrenal insufficiency. Although it is very difficult to detect and diagnose this condition early, once it is diagnosed, adrenal insufficiency is a highly treatable, yet lifelong, disease that typically does not negatively impact activity level or life expectancy if treated properly.
