Millions of seniors have a variety of medical conditions such as diabetes, heart disease and Alzheimer's which should be immediately known to emergency personnel. 


Every senior should carry a MEDAlert™ to provide responders with identification information, current medications, allergies/reactions, and existing medical conditions all of which are critical to appropriate medical treatment.


Diabetes (over 13 million), diagnosed heart disease (23 million), Alzheimer's, transplant surgery, patient's currently on blood thinners such as Coumadin, epilepsy, asthma, severe allergies, cancer patients and medication allergies such as penicillin and other antibiotics are all conditions that should be brought to the attention of emergency personnel.
