Travelling abroad – Type 2 Diabetes
Traveling abroad – type 2 diabetes.
Type 2 diabetes is a lifelong disease that needs to be managed, often with the use of medicines. With this in mind, when planning your holidays please keep three key things in mind:
- Take sufficient quantities of medicines and be sure to discuss hoe much should be taken with your specialist diabetes nurse or doctor.
- Given that check-in luggage can sometime get lost or damaged it may be better to carry your medicines in your hand luggage.
- Some patients may need to inject their medications. If this applies to you then it is important to have your GP write a letter that confirms this. Please be sure to keep this letter with your medicines.
