Parathyroid UK Medical Emergency Card
Having a calcium crisis means you need to act fast but it’s not always easy to explain what is happening to you or what you need so, in conjunction with our medical advisors, we have made you an Emergency Card .
It is a plastic card designed to carry on you at all times. Just fill in your personal details on the back. Available to buy from our shop for £5 plus p&p.
Please note: If you need to keep your corrected calcium below 2.2mmol this card will not be suitable for you. We will be bringing out a card for non- surgical hypopara types soon.
*Not suitable for hyperparathyroidism patients or overseas members
