Travel Tips For People with Diabetes

Travel Tips for People With Diabetes

  • Carry an ID that says you have diabetes.
  • Learn how to say “I have diabetes” and “sugar” or “orange juice” in the languages of foreign countries you plan to visit.
  • Take extra diabetes medications and supplies you need in case you need to stay longer or have travel problems.
  • Pack your medicine and supplies in your carry on luggage. This includes all pills, your glucometer and supplies, insulin (if you take it) and snacks.

Other general travel tips:

  • Do not use insulin from another county. It may be different that what you use here.
  • Continue to check your blood sugar regularly

Relax and enjoy your travels. With your preparation, you can leave the worries behind and have a great time!
