Diabetes Road-Trip Tips for the Upcoming Holidays

Don’t let diabetes get in the way of your holiday travel plans. Here are some helpful guidelines to control your condition, keep supplies and medications safe, and be prepared in case of an accident:

  • Keep diabetes medications, syringes, testing supplies, batteries, and extra food and sugar sources in a purse or backpack. Bring two times as many medications and testing supplies as you think you’ll need.
  • Wear your diabetes ID bracelet or carry your diabetes ID card.
  • If the weather is cold, wear insulin pumps and continuous glucose meters close to your body and cover with clothing to keep them from freezing, and keep glucose meters in a protective case.
  • Keep insulin cool, but protect it from freezing, as it can lose its potency.
  • Check your blood sugar regularly.
  • Dress for the weather: wearing layers is a good idea in case the weather changes. Also, wear comfortable shoes and check your feet daily for any cuts or sores.
  • Keep your gas tank full and have the following on hand for emergencies: jumper cables, an ice scraper, flares, a small shovel, blankets, kitty litter or sand for icy patches, food and water, a compass, maps, a flashlight, a battery-operated radio, and extra batteries.
  • See your doctor before you go to make sure your diabetes is under control and get any necessary immunizations (at least one month before traveling). They can also provide you with a letter stating your condition and explaining the supplies and medications you need to have with you, and write any necessary prescriptions in case you run out while traveling.
