Travel Tips For People Living With Diabetes
Thursday, 18 November 2010
Travel delays during the holidays are an inconvenience for many, but for those traveling with diabetes, these delays can mean real trouble for those who are not prepared. Other things to be prepared for include lost baggage and limited options for healthy food. For travelers with diabetes, dLife.com is the best travel resource, supplying tips and information to ensure that these travelers are well prepared.

These tips include various ideas, such as packing double the normal amount of medication in your carry-on baggage, ensuring extra snacks and glucose tablets or gel are packed, bring your own healthy meal if one won't be available, wear your medical ID and carry your medical insurance card and an emergency number to call, and be sure to be prepared with ways to keep your insulin cool and bring 2 Glucagon kits.

In addition to the above, you should be sure to tell someone who is traveling with you about your diabetes and the signs to watch out for should low blood sugar occur. While in the airport, be sure to move around frequently while waiting. Other tips include avoiding going barefoot, even in pools and showers and never leaving your medication in the glove compartment or trunk of your car, where it can overheat. Finally, stick to your usual blood testing routine as much as possible.
