The past week or so I have been in touch with Medic Alert in Australia to figure out what I will get written on my bracelet. Being a T1 diabetic on insulin, I have been a member of Medic Alert (firstly in NZ & then in Australia since 2001) since my diagnosis back in the 80's.
It was great to see in the most recent newsletter from Medic Alert, a member testimonial about a woman who has got a Cochlear Implant & how important the bracelet is.

I hope to order my new bracelet this week to update my changes in the information kept on file but also to give me a new bracelet which will now mention that I am a Cochlear Implant recipient & cannot have MRI's, diathermy or ECT. This is another little thing that I was not aware of before having the implant. I only hope that I do not ever need any of these things to save my life! (Note: The implant would need to be surgically removed for me to be able to have an MRI, diathermy or ECT. So it is not impossible if the need is there.)
