Allergy Awareness Week: 20th – 26th April 2015

People generally think that a food allergy or allergy caused by medicines are relatively low, but the sad truth is that it is not that way. A drug allergy or any other allergy can lead to a very serious medical emergency, and may even threaten your life. If you want to prevent yourself from a specific allergen (z. B. peanut allergy or penicillin allergy) and take all necessary steps to accidental overdose or severe allergy, you will need to wear a medical ID bracelet or a specific medical allergy bracelet.

What are Allergies?allergy-18656_1280

An allergy is basically an error by the immune system. If a particular non‐harmful substance enters the body, your white blood cells will treat the foreign substance, as if it were a disease that release histamine and other chemicals that lead to some unpleasant side effects. If you see itchy skin, hives, swelling, rashes, congestion, or troubling breathing after taking something as an allergen, then contact your doctor to determine if you have an allergy to anything.

I have a drug allergy?

The two most common types of allergies are allergies to foods and allergies to medications. If you have a food allergy, you can avoid contact with the substance in general, and you will be OK. If you have a drug allergy, you must be certain that there are arrangements in place to ensure that you do not accidentally get medications without knowledge of you allergy when you are unconscious and unable to communicate with doctors and paramedics.

These medical professionals search for a medical bracelet or allergy alert bracelet before they administer any drug needed. For example in a car accident, before the paramedic administers morphine, he or she checks for signs to see if you have a drug allergy or not. He or she sees on your left arm for a type of medical ID bracelet.

When the professional attending you sees your medical ID bracelet, he or she would then choose a different type of drug, managing a potentially fatal dose of a dangerous allergen to prevent. It will also help them to know about food allergies such as peanut allergy, tree nut allergy, shellfish allergy, etc.

Nut allergy bracelets

Nut allergy nut allergy bracelets or jewelry is probably the last thing on anyone’s mind , for moderate to severe nut allergies. After all one can not serve decoratives with a purpose beyond being bracelets, necklaces and anklets also. However, when it comes to a chronic condition, such as a nut allergy, quickly identified as having this disease is often necessary.

Therefore nut allergy bracelets are often worn. They are not just for anyone to learn about the health of the wearer, but also for rescue workers, first‐aid personnel and medical professionals to perform the appropriate action if the carrier to make involved attention in an emergency.

What forms of medical identification jewelry are there?

There really is no substitute for a medical ID bracelet in terms of quality, price and purpose. You get a large selection which includes a variety of styles and sizes, so that your condition can slide by unnoticed except by those who need to know. Many people decide that medical tattoos are a foolproof way to inform doctors of their condition, but they are receiving very painful, and create a permanent mark on the skin. Besides many patients also use a medical ID card to slip into their wallet, but what happens when you are without your wallet in the hospital?

Fortunately, there are some quality online stores like MyIdentityDoctor.com that offer a wide selection of affordable medical ID jewelry, readily available for everyone with internet access.

Tips to Beat the Summer Heat

Share Button

Beat Summer Heat Summer is just around the corner and with that comes the summer heat 2015. Many people love the heat. It means they can swim in the pool or go to the beach. But for others, it comes with some real health risks. Older people, young kids, and people with certain conditions are at high risk for the dangers of heat. Some of the dangers include: heat stroke, dehydration, cramps, fainting, dizziness, or heat exhaustion. If you’re at high risk for these, try out these summer heat safety tips.

  • Wear loose-fitted clothing. Nothing is worse in the summertime than clothes that stick to your sweaty body. But it’s also not good for your body. Your body needs space to breathe. By wearing tight clothing, you’re inhibiting your body’s natural cooling process.

  • Drink a lot of water. In the heat, our bodies dehydrate at a much quicker pace. A lack of water can quicken the onset of heat stroke and other heat-related medical conditions. Be sure to always have a bottle of water with you when you’re out in the heat.

  • Consider getting a medical bracelet. Medical alert jewelry can save your life. It will contain your personal information and medical history in case you are not in a state of mind to do so yourself. This could be quite useful in the summer months when the chance of fainting is heightened. You can look online for all different kinds and styles of bracelets.

  • Learn about the medication you’re taking. Some medications can lower or raise your body temperature. Other medications can dehydrate you. In order to beat the summer heat, be aware of the effects of your medication. Take any precautions necessary to prevent your body from overheating.

  • Don’t stay out too long. If you’re at high risk for heat-related problems, you won’t want to be out too long. Let the people you’re with know of your special condition. Stay in the shade when possible, and when you feel it’s time, head indoors. It may put a damper on the summer fun, but it’s better than becoming sick!

  • Wear sunscreen. Sunscreen does more than protect your skin, it protects your entire body. When your skin burns, it’s less able to cool your body. This is because your top layer of skin dies, closing up the pores on the surface. Your heat and sweat get trapped below your top layer of skin.

Overall, you need to pay attention to your body. It is a fragile system that can shut down when not taken care of. Do your best to take all these precautions. Talk to your doctor for more ways to prevent summer heat from ruining your fun in the sun. Make this summer the best – and healthiest – yet!
