The holiday season means lots of travel, which can sometimes be more challenging for those who have diabetes. Here are some tips that can ensure diabetes is managed properly while on-the-go.

 .

When You Travel:

.

*During your trip, stick to your meal and exercise plans as much as you can.

*Wear an ID necklace or bracelet that says you have diabetes.

*Keep your diabetes kit with you, not in your luggage.

*On train, bus, or airplane trips, take a walk in the aisle at least every 2 hours.

*Always carry a source of fast-acting sugar with you, such as glucose tablets or hard candies.

*Carry extra snacks, such as crackers, cheese, or fruit, in case meals are delayed.

*Drink plenty of water, especially when traveling by air.

*Carry your healthcare provider’s phone number with you.

.

These are just a few of the ways to help manage diabetes during holiday travel. It is also advised to notify your health care provider of your plans so that they can help create a plan to prepare for unexpected situations.
