We're going to Geneve for 10 days. My first and most pressing concern is my pump. I'm currently using the sensor. What's the airport security like there? I've got a little card from my hospital bearing its logo and saying I'm diabetic and need my pump at all times. Now I've been through security in three different airports (Riyadh, Manchester, Dubai and London) with my pump but I've noticed that their policies and regulations vary a great deal. Never with a minilink on. My BG is usually under control- what with all the moving around- when I travel and is never a concern. What sets me off is supplies and such. I tend to be forgetful so you understand my anxiety when I post a thread every time I plan on traveling :* I once lost my pen novofine needles in Manchester. When I went to the nearest boots they said I needed a prescription -Fortunately, I relocated the missing box- Is it like that in Switzerland? Do I need a travel insurance? What if something goes wrong with my pump?
I'd also love it if anyone could supply some useful phrases in French and German( both I understand are widely used where we plan on going) such as I'm diabetic and this is an insulin pump and that kind of stuff.
Thanks and sorry if this is too repetitive. I googled-most of what I found was outdated- but I'd like to hear from you guys.
