    Default Did you get a medical braclet?

    My prescription bottle says to get a medical braclet. No one I know wears one for this. It wouldn't be on there if it wasn't necessary right?

    Maybe because it's traditionally used to treat diabetes?

    Your right! The more I thought about it I called the pharmacy and they said it was more for diabetes.

    I saw that too, and thought about it as I wouldn't want something random to happen and that was something an EMT or ER doc should've known about, but unless I were to go into a diabetic coma, I don't think it would've been relevant

    I don't have one. But I do have a Medical info card in my wallet and an In Case of Emergency App on my phone. I work in the ER and I see too often where even people who are alert and talking still get frazzled by having to be in the ER and in that moment can't remember their meds or the dosages. And there are plenty of times where knowing that is important to treatment.

    I believe I've read where you can't have some imaging tests done while taking Met. I'm only like oh, 80% sure that's what I read but it might be for that reason.

    That sounded familiar so I looked it up. If your taking Met you shouldn't have any imaging test that require dye injections like CTs or MRIs

    No dental work should be fine from what I've read. It's test that require contrast medium. You can still have them done you should just quit taking the met temporarily. The risk comes from the contrast dye can cause kidney damage (that usually corrects itself) and since the kidneys are what takes the met out of your system it causes a build then can cause lactic acidosis. So if you do take met and need a test that requires the dye your supposed to have your kidney function tested after the test.

    It is not necessary to wear because it is work in different way on every person. I have this braclet and i like to wear it because it is more effective for me. You should use it but it is not necessary.

    Hi there! I thought I would chime in on this post because I recently asked my nutritionalist about the need for a medical bracelet. She, like other people I've seen on here agreed that you only need that if you are diabetic. It is good to keep something on you stating all your medical conditions and any medications that you take in the event of an emergency, but a medical bracelet is not needed for us!!
