David Marrero Gives Tips for Traveling with Diabetes

Planning ahead and being prepared for contingencies are the main elements for traveling with diabetes. You need to know that you may not be able to eat when you need to and may have difficulty taking insulin when it’s meal time on the plane. Be prepared for delayed flights and times when the plane may need to take an unexpected detour. If you’re planning a personal vacation, make sure you’ll have the opportunity to include exercise and know where you can have healthy meals. Always have a blood glucose meter with you so you can monitor your blood sugar levels on the plane, on the road, and at any other time so you know if you need a snack or need to take your insulin.
