Does anyone with Type 1 VWD wear a medical alert bracelet?

I do and i swear it has opened more opportunities to share with people that say oh hey I have all of those symptoms I should ask my doctor about that. It also helped when o was in a car accident for the responding officer to give a heads up to medical personnel. I actually just got a new one and I'm in love with it..its called myid and it hold a chip with all of my medical information on it so if I were ever unresponsive they just have to either scan or call in and give them my username and password and they can have all my info including emergency contacts.

When I was originally diagnosed with vW type one I did have a MedicAlert bracelet. Still have one for vW type 2b. Bracelet had disease on it and medication I take. Hope this helps.

Things to consider putting on it! Name VWD t1 and you doctor's number or hospital number Be sure the front side has the medical insignia so it will be easily spotted
