With summer around the corner, vacations are being booked and we’re setting out to travel. Now, naturally, traveling is a lot for anyone, but as Diabetics, we need to be extra prepared in order to avoid disaster.
Stacey Divone of The Girl with the Portable Pancreas offers up the following tips:
I always make sure I have a snack in my bag, once past security I fill my water container, and I make sure my medication is IN MY CARRY ON – not my checked bag! Too many instances of checked baggage being lost, and then your medication is lost, and I don’t know about the meds you take, but with some of mine, I CANNOT refill them more than once within 30 days – so lost medication would be a BIG problem for me. I consider my medication like a valuable – I keep it with me and don’t check it.
Do you have any other tips to help ease the burden of traveling as a Diabetic?
