Having diabetes does not mean you can’t enjoy the fun and excitement that traveling brings with it. With a little bit of planning you can enjoy your travels to the fullest and keep your diabetes in check.

  1. Always carry your prescription along while traveling
  2. Carry at least twice as many medicines and insulin as you usually need
  3. Always carry extra batteries with your glucometer
  4. Carry small snacks to help cope with low sugar levels
  5. Never store insulin in checked luggage, it may be exposed to extreme temperatures
  6. Check your blood sugar levels regularly
  7. Do simple stretching exercises in your seat during the flight
  8. Have small, frequent meals instead of three big meals in a day
  9. Prefer water, unsweetened teas/ coffee or diet soda to other drinks
  10. Wear comfortable shoes and never go out bare feet on beaches

    i learnt a strong lesson while travelling from varanasi to delhi by a train.there was a sikh family who were left with only last shot of insulin.and the uncle and his wife,daughter in law etc were so stressed that i was wondering if all of them need insulin.then suddenly i recalled a friend who lives in lakhnow.i sent him a picture of their insulin using whatsapp and requested him to bring one on lakhnow station and meet at platform.
    efforts brought fruitful results ,he brought the insulin timely and we gave it to that sikh uncle.
    everybody cheered,i am a coin collector living in delhi and due to social media web sites and apps like whatsapp,i have grown a vast network with having a fellow coin collector or dealer in almost every corner of india.
    it was this network which did the wonder.
    hk,you should start delivering drugs to travellers across india.think about it.the idea has substance in it.
    many times my kids get food infection while travelling,and the only option while travelling in small towns is fake doctors and fake medicines.
    with time as an adult we all know medicines for basic health conditions,i usually carry most of them with me now,but i have manytimes seen people helpless,asking support from fellow travellers.
    nice article.
    looking forward for more on living a healthy lifestyle and preventive health care to avoid emergency.

    At this time it looks like WordPress is the preferred
    blogging platform out there right now. (from what I’ve read) Is that
    what you are using on your blog?

    I have been browsing online more than 2 hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like
    yours. It is pretty worth enough for me. In my opinion, if all web owners and bloggers made good content as you
    did, the internet will be much more useful than ever before.
