Medical ID Bracelets Help Parents And Children Cope With Food Allergies

PHILADELPHIA, June 30, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Food allergies don't just cause a rash or a stomach ache. For some, it's a life-threatening reaction, and that number is on the rise.

Researchers found that 1 in 12 children are affected by some form of food allergy; 40% of those suffering have a history of severe reactions, according to the journal Pediatrics. The study found that the most common food allergies were peanuts, milk and shellfish.

For parents of children with food allergies, just sending their child to school catapults a fury of anxiety: Will the teacher remember? What if they serve snacks? Do the other children understand? What if they get too close to something in the cafeteria lunches? There's also the added sense of embarrassment for children and especially teenagers suffering food allergies.

"Teenagers find it 'not cool' to carry an auto-injector," said Dr. Clifford Bassett, director of Allergy & Asthma Care of New York and member of the public education committee for the American College of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology, in a recent CNN article.

Medical ID bracelets can help calm some of those fears. By helping protect those afflicted by certain disease or allergies, medical identification bracelets can be engraved with your medical information right on there, so in the event of an emergency, people know how to react.

The trick is finding a company that doesn't suit up with those clunky medical bands that look out of place. Hope Paige Designs mixes fashion with function as one of the foremost designers of stylish medical alert jewelry at an affordable price. Featuring necklaces, key chains, flash drives and silver, beaded, leather, mesh or rubber bracelets, Hope Paige can let parents rest a little easier and help children suffering with these food allergies feel comfortable around their peers.
