I switched to a pump from MDI about 2 yrs back and this April will be the first time I've done any air travel with it. I'll be traveling to Paris and returning here from England, duration of the trip 10 days. Suddenly I realize there are complications to traveling abroad with this system that I didn't have with MDI. There's a lot more diabetic paraphernalia to drag along, I'm not sure what the routine is for getting through airport security with this odd electronic/liquid device strapped to my body, how to keep insulin refrigerated, should I consider switching back to MDI for the trip...? and so forth.
I'd love to hear from any other pump users as to what their experience of it has been like--any pitfalls or unanticipated problems you ran into. Anything you can tell me would be greatly appreciated!
