Silicone Insulin vial protector. Don't take a chance of your bottle of insulin being destroyed by drops, bumps, or inadvertent jostling. This silicone sleeve protects your medication, and it has over 170 4 star or higher ratings in the Amazon store.
Compression knee highs. These have the copper thread woven in. Compression socks and stockings are wonderful when traveling to reduce the risk of blood clots.
Here are more compression socks, but these are for wide calves.
If you have diabetes, I strongly suggest putting an Air Tag on you bag that contains your medication in addition to your checked luggage.
This small but mighty collapsible travel stool can accommodate 550 pounds. It stands only 17 inches high, but for long lines, like at the airport, this is a lifesaver. A carry strap comes with it. You can purchase a clip and snap it onto your carryon. Absolutely a clever invention.
Ketone Strips are a useful tool for diabetics, they give you a range of where your blood sugar is at. Although they are not as accurate as a finger prick, sometimes, it is easier to go and use the strip. You simply urinate on the stick following the directions.
Always carry snacks when traveling. My doctor has scolded me for failing to plan self care. This is a great protein based snack. They have several flavors, a box of 12 will set you back less than 20.00. How much would 2 of these cost at the airport? Better to tuck a box in your suitcase, setting aside a couple for your carryon.
Let everyone know that you are diabetic when traveling by throwing on a couple of these silicone bracelets. These could literally be the difference between life and death if someone is unconscious. All 5 are included in the purchase.
I was visiting a friend's mother when she started suffering the signs of low blood sugar. Orange juice was given, but it did not seem to do the trick. With all her energy, she looked at me and asked me to bring her the bottle of glucose tablets. In moments, she was fine, save for a little sweat. I keep these in my purse at all times. If you have hypoglycemia or diabetes, you should as well. Reasonably priced for 3 bottles.
This wedge inflates and deflates, so you can tuck it into a corner of your suitcase. Elevate your feet for swelling or your head to breathe easier, or-get 2 and do both. Works well. Try it out at home before you go.
