Air Travel

I’m going on a trip Nov 7th. What do I have to do to bring insulin/pump supplies/gel/glucagon, on the plane. Also, I like to carry a juice box in my purse, any way I will be able to take this on the plane?

the TSA website can help you. I took gluc tablets with me. I ran into a problem, they delayed breakfast on my flight for 30 mins so i had to eat a few til my breakfast was served. I ordered a diabetic meal with Delta. If your not sure call your airline to see what they allow. I know insulin, pump, and tablets are allowed, im not sure about gel though i cant remember.

I’ve traveled alot both MDI and pumping. I have never been asked about my supplies. I do not bring a juice box though. I do have a letter from my endo and copies of all my scripts.

Here is another thread.

Be prepared with some glucose tabs just in case. You might get questioned about the gel. Sometimes they allow juice boxes through when explained it’s for a diabetic emergency & sometimes they don’t. No point wasting time & energy arguing about this.

Another good thing to bring along is extra meter batteries.
