I’ve had a medical alert bracelet since I was diagnosed T1 in 2015. I have a pump and am allergic to penicillin and sulfa drugs. My family doctor urges me to wear one. I have my medical conditions and family emergency contact information engraved on it. EMT will have the important information that could save my life.

May 29th to July 4th 2016
SJPDP to Santiago
And many, many more I pray
Are they recognized worldwide?
Also with language barriers?
I also have a life threatening allergy to penicillin and high sensitivity to sulpha.
These concerns crossed my mind when I walked alone in 2016

I have had two hospital visits spanning 5 Caminos. Each in emergency for the day only. Spanish medical staff were frustrated as I did not have a printed copy of medical history and current medication.
Now carry these details.
BTW the treatment and tests were first class. Just mention “peregrinó “ and they were very attentive as it distinguished me from tourists.

No medical conditions but husband a little concerned about me traveling alone - he purchased a nice ID bracelet for me from RoadID - has my name, hometown, his phone number and a second phone number on it in case of an emergency.

Hello Jamieb
Not sure which Camino you will be walking. For what its worth I have seen many solo women walkers and they usually pal up for some stages with another woman or group including women. Ages ranging from early 20s through to 60+. It may be of interest that in 2018 the statistics show more women registered at the pilgrims office than men.
Buen Camino
