Why should someone with nut allergy wear a MedicAlert medical ID ?
Nut allergies are a very real problem with a potentially fatal reaction. Even when you think you`ve taken every precaution, you are never 100% certain where you or your child may encounter foods which may contain nuts. The use of nuts in food, drinks and snacks is dangerously common. An allergic reaction can vary from mild rashes to severe anaphylactic shock where your throat may close up. When this happens, immediate treatment is a must. Your MedicAlert ID bracelet will alert paramedics and doctors to administer epinephrine (e.g. EpiPen®) immediately. Every second counts and can mean the difference between life and death. Don't wait. Sign Up
