Anyone have an id from idonme.com? I ordered this in pink and am excited to try it! I bought the silicone necklace to go with it. They also sell bracelets. I've been just wearing a basic stainless steel bracelet and am always looking for something new!

I guess I don't really wear what is considered a "legit" piece of medical ID - I've lost so many Medic Alert bracelets over the years due to my sports - that I went the route of what children wear. So far, it works for me, with phone number of contact, etc. (it can be engraved with whatever you want - or left blank). I get mine from http://www.rescuemeids.com/ - the owner has 2 sons with diabetes.

I have purchased for American Medical ID. The sportband cost under $40.00



If you have the doctor verify your medications are correct, they will warranty your engravings for 1 year if your medications change.

@Chris woops sorry :) Yeah I'm pretty sure I'm gonna order from them. And might not make myself choose one, might get a few since their inexpensive :)

I have one from medic alert...stainless steel, has my registered number, the 1-800 phone number, and the words Diabetic/Insulin pump engraved on it. I love the clasp; it has never come undone. I keep my bracelet on all the time. It is not the prettiest, but I was told that it is the one that paramedics will notice and recognize if they are called to assist an unresponsive person. Also, the fact that you register with medic alert company, when a first responder/doctor calls the 1-800 number and gives them your specific ID number that is engraved on the bracelet, they then have the follwoing information: doctor, endocrinologist's name, your emergency contact info, all medicines that you are taking, and other important info. I know it's not the prettiest, (it's not gawdy either) but I'd rather be safe than trying to worry about how I look in my medical ID.

I checked out the site but it is Coolmedid.com without the s on the end, there's some interesting ID's there.
