Traveling with Diabetes
The best tip that we've discovered is powdered Gatorade. We mix up 8 oz. to carry with us, and then carry a small amount of the powder. You can usually find water to mix more if needed and don't have to carry all that extra weight of the water. Sometimes we mix it double strength (instead of mixing 3/4 of a scoop to 8 oz. of water, we mix 11/2 scoops to 8 oz. of water) . That way Jared only has to drink 1/2 of the container (4 oz.), to treat a low, we don't have to carry around as much, and he prefers the taste!
With the recent terrorist attacks, flying with diabetes supplies may raise some questions at security gates. Check with your carrier before flying to make sure you take the appropriate steps before arriving at the airport. Some carriers may require that you carry prescriptions with you for your supplies.
