Tips for diabetes to travel freely


You should not go on holiday due to diabetes management, because you do. Traveling to new places comes out of your routine - it's a big part of the fun. But delayed meals, unusual foods, are more active than normal. And you can inhibit diabetes management in different time zones. You're more fun and less thoughtful about reaching your destination and when you reach your destination, continue.

1. Go to your doctor for a checkup to make sure you are fit for the trip. Make sure to ask your doctor:

  • How your planned activities can affect your diabetes and what it can do about it.
  • If you travel to a different time zone, how to adjust your insulin levels.
  • Provide a prescription for your medication if you lose them or run out.
  • If you need any vaccinations.
  • You have diabetes and write letters asking why you need medical supplies.

2. Just in case, locate the nearest medicine and clinic where you are staying

3. Get a medical ID bracelet that tells you about diabetes and any other health conditions.

4. If you miss your flight or if you need treatment, travel insurance.

5. Order a special meal for a flight that fits your meal plan, or pack yourself.


  • Place a carry bag (diabetes supplies) in your bag (Insulin may get your check luggage too cold). Think about bringing a small bag to your seat for insulin, glucose tablets and snakes.
  • As much as twice as much medicine as you think you pack, they carry medicines in the pharmacy bottles or ask your pharmacist to print additional labels associated with a plastic bag.
  • Do not forget to pack healthy foods like fruits, raw veggies, and nuts.

7. Airport Security:

  • Get an optional TSA notice card to move the screening process faster and smoother.
  • Happy news - Diabetes patients are given a discount of 3.4 oz. A liquid rule for medicines, carbon like fast chemistry, and gel packs keep insulin cool.
  • Continual glucose monitor or insulin pump may be damaged by the X-ray machine. You do not have to disconnect from; Instead, ask for a hand inspection.

8. See CDC passengers' health sites for more supportive organizations.

9. If you are driving, make cool with plenty of healthy food and plenty of water.

10. Do not store insulin or diabetes in direct sunlight or hot car; Keep them very cool Insulin ice or a gel pack is not directly.

11. Heat also can damage your blood sugar monitor, insulin pump, and other diabetes equipment. Do not leave them in a hot car, by a pool, direct sunlight, or at the beach. The same supply goes for such test strips

12. You can find healthy eating options at the airport or on the street side restaurant:

  • Fruits, nuts, sandwiches, curd
  • Salad with Chicken or Fish (Avoid Dried Fruits and Croutons)
  • Eggs and omelets
  • Burgers with a body instead of a Latin wrap
  • Falgias (excluding Tortoise and Rice)

13. Stop and get out of the car or walk or walk around on the airplane, or train every hour to prevent the start of the blood (people with diabetes are at high risk).

14. If you are traveling throughout the timezone, set the alarm on your phone to take medication.

15. Your blood sugar may come out of your target range early, but your body should adjust within a few days. Check your blood sugar often and treat high or lows as directed by your doctor or diabetes educator.

16. If you are going to be more active than usual, check your blood sugar before and after and adjust the food, activity, and insulin.

17. A huge highlight (and temptation!) On a cruise food is to avoid the giant boat, and instead, the span menu (healthier preferences) or the low-carb menu (one of most vessels) or ordering your meal from 24-hour room service Make some delicious things in planning.

18. Physical activity of heat during the day is not too much. Avoid getting a sunlight and do not go barefoot, even on the beach.

19. How your body uses insulin can change high temperature. You can check your blood sugar often and your insulin dosage and what you eat and drink. Get more hot weather tips here.

20. You will not be able to find everything you need to keep your diabetes away from home, especially in other countries. Learn some useful phrases, such as "I'm Diabetes" and "Where's the nearest pharmacy?"

21. If your vacation is in great condition, bring wet tissue so that you can clean your hands before checking your blood sugar.


Diabetes can travel every day and more challenging, but it does not have to stay close to you. The more plans you can make, the more you relax and enjoy all the exciting experiences of your trip.

Do not leave the house without them:

  • Doctor's letter and prescription
  • Snake and glucose tablets
  • Additional insulin and diabetes medicines

Say goodbye when you pack your diabetes pack on a carry-on bag.
