Before you travel:

  • Letter from GP saying you have diabetes
  • Letter from doctor saying you’re on a pump (if applicable)
  • Some sugar to hand (not in liquid form if you are flying)
  • Put insulin in a clear plastic bag if you are flying to have handy for going through security

For injectors:

  • Blood test machine
  • Lancing device
  • Blood test sensors
  • Insulin cartridges
  • Insulin pens (long-acting and short-acting)
  • Needles
  • Hypo treatment

For insulin pump users:

  • Reservoirs
  • Infusion sets
  • Infusion set inserter
  • Bottles insulin
  • Batteries for pump
  • Blood test machine
  • Lancing device
  • Blood test sensors
  • Hypo treatment

If flying make sure you have some diabetes supplies in your hand luggage in case your bags get lost. Have a safe trip and most of all – enjoy yourself! And don't forget to use the spike app for insulin reminders!
