How do you travel to exotic places with Type 1 diabetes?

Two or three days without insulin and I'm in mortal trouble. A little stomach sickness and I'm spiraling out of control. Must I only go to Disneyland?

Same way to go anywhere -- prepared.

I travel with a spare insulin pump (can get it from your pump manufacturer) and a spare glucometer (or two). Insulin I carry with me in a Frio bag, which keeps it cool. I keep my diabetes supplies in my carry-on on the plane. I have glucose tabs and my medic alert bracelet, and I'm set.

Been to a lot of places, and some pretty wild places (like the Sahara desert in the deep south of Libya [pre-Arab spring]), across most of Europe, South Africa, North Africa, Asia (including a bike ride from Hanoi to Saigon). Will be going to West Africa in the spring -- diabetes is the least of my worries! Last count was something like 35 countries and all 50 states.

Oh, and my 10 year old diabetic daughter (and her two sisters) has traveled extensively too (mostly Europe, as we lived there for 5 years) -- but they've been to more countries than US states. The only time we ever had a problem with insulin was when it got roasted in a car on a trip to Houston...
