These are my top 5 travel tips:

  1.  When packing, check diabetes supplies and then check them again after a little while, just to be sure there’s nothing you’ve forgotten.
  2. Try to document as much information as possible about accurate readings and insulin amounts taken, to help with making decisions regarding food and timings etc. as things/experiences can get crazy when travelling.
  3. Make sure to always have some low GI food/drink with your dinner meal, as chances are you’ve probably had an adventurous day and need the sustenance and continuity that low GI food/drink can provide to keep your levels at bay during the night.
  4. Carry water with you whenever possible to avoid unexpected thirst pangs if blood glucose levels become high.
  5. And lastly and most importantly, enjoy your travels!! With all the continuous preparation and monitoring diabetics require in their day (and night) you need to make the most of any travels and have fun!
