I agree. Just get a medical id and wear that. If it's not an actual MedicAlert, you can get customized id's from many other sources. But the point is to wear it. EMTs are trained to look for those on the wrist (or dog tag). They are not going to look at a magic band (that everyone in the park is wearing). If you want to provide medical identification, wear a medical ID. As for the shirts, I really find them quite horrible. I can't imagine wanting to define my child's every action by his disease, and that's pretty much what the shirts convey to me. That every action this child makes is a result of his or her disease. It's also why I hate the terms "autistic" "aspie" "diabetic" and the like. Kids are more than their disease. They have autism. They are on the spectrum. They have diabetes. They aren't their disease.
