Traveling By Plane With Diabetes

| March 4, 2009

Traveling With DiabetesDLife.com posted some great tips on flying with diabetes:

* Ask for an aisle seat if you will use the restroom for insulin injections.
* Get your ticket and seat early to prevent bumping.
* If traveling alone, tell the flight attendant you have diabetes.
* Keep your diabetes medicines with you, don’t store them in an overhead bin.
* Don’t inject air into the insulin bottle before drawing up your dose. The air is pressurized.
