Travelling with Diabetes
I’ve been travelling more than I’m used to lately and suddenly I’m really interested in what items to pack for my diabetes. On a plane the other day I suddenly had the thought, “What if I use up all my sugar for lows and need more?” Now typically on a large plane, there are sodas and juice but on the plane to my hometown there is no such thing because it’s a small bumpy ride home.
So…I want to ask those of you who have diabetes and travel from time to time or frequently, what do you pack in your carry on? Do you travel with glucagon? Do you bring tons of back up glucose tabs? What do you do with your back up or extra insulin that you bring if there is no fridge in the hotel room? Does that affect it’s function later? Do you eat differently when you are travelling?
So many questions!
