Choose the style you prefer, and we will engrave it with your adrenal insufficiency or Addison’s diagnosis.
Adrenal insufficiency is a condition resulting from insufficient hormone production by the adrenal glands, which are located on top of each kidney. Typically, these glands produce three types of hormones (glucocorticoids, mineralocorticoids, and androgens), and when they fail to do so, the result is adrenal insufficiency. Although it is very difficult to detect and diagnose this condition early, once it is diagnosed, adrenal insufficiency is a highly treatable, yet lifelong, disease that typically does not negatively impact activity level or life expectancy if treated properly.
There are three main types of adrenal insufficiency. There’s primary adrenal insufficiency, which is also called Addison’s disease, as well as secondary and tertiary adrenal insufficiency. Hormone replacement therapy is common for all three forms of adrenal insufficiency.
People with adrenal insufficiency can experience adrenal crisis, which is life-threatening and requires immediate medical assistance, including an emergency injection of glucocorticoid at the first signs of adrenal crisis.
AN ADDISON’S DISEASE MEDICAL ID COULD SAVE YOUR LIFE
For those with adrenal insufficiency, medical ID necklaces or bracelets are absolutely essential. In an emergency, whether it is caused by your condition or not, EMTs need to know your diagnosis and treatment regimen so they may provide the most appropriate assistance without offering you any medications or treatments that are contraindicated.
If you have adrenal insufficiency, wearing medical ID jewelry is imperative. We recommend listing your name, diagnosis(es), any medications, all allergies, and emergency contact numbers. Here are some examples of what to engrave on an Addison’s Disease medical ID:
