How can I deal with delays and unexpected problems during my trip?

Bring food, and take more diabetes supplies than you would normally need. A small pouch containing supplies such as pills, insulin, syringes, a blood glucose meter, and test strips will help you manage your diabetes through travel delays or lost luggage scenarios. A sandwich, packaged peanut butter and crackers, and glucose tablets or gel can be literal lifesavers when the vending machines are empty and the concessions are closed. A prepaid phone card will allow you to make calls if you can’t get cell phone reception.
