[IP] Re: VENT: Inferior products: Medic Alert & Sport belts
Sounds like you are having a tough day. Very frustrating to be diabetic and
have to deal with all of the day-to-day problems, isn't it? I appreciate
your difficulties but have to take issue with you about Medic Alert. I used
the same bracelet from them for about 8 years until I went on the pump and
got a new one that added "insulin pump" to it. And to call Medic Alert a
sham is going a bit far don't you think? In the past 12 years that I have
been a member, they have provided vital information to medical care or
emergency personnel for me 3 times when I wasn't able to. That was
priceless and is the real reason for their existence. But maybe you should
suggest they make a "heavy duty" bracelet chain that will take more abuse.
In any case, take it easy, Darrin. Tomorrow will be a better day!

All I ask is a medic alert braclet that doesn';t fall appart 30 days past
warranty and a sprit belt for my D pump.
The leather worker came up wiht a thing for the Medica Alert disk but dollar
after dollar it costs time and money to get the thing to fit - it's not
comfortable but I can tolerate such.
IMO (and this isn't humble) dealing with a sham like the Medica Alert
foundation fo r27 years and a thousand dollars worht of broken and lost
braclets I think they whoucl be closed down and shown for the sham e they
are. All I got fork them was that all their products were *designed* to
break at tx punds of force so that old people wouldn't get broken bones if
the products caught on something. - yeah like a thread!
