Summer has arrived for many of us, and summer makes me think of travel and camping trips. Traveling with diabetes requires a little advance planning. Preparation depends on where you're going and what you're doing. The American Diabetes Association (ADA) provides some good travel trips that I'd like to share:
See your doctor before leaving
Prepare for an emergency abroad
Understand potential insulin issues
Take care once you're there
Lastly, it can be helpful to prepare for airport security if you're flying to your destination. Check the ADA's webpage on air travel and diabetes for more information about how security measures may affect you — www.diabetes.org.
