How to travel with diabetes

Diabetes is a disease that needs constant monitoring. Either the patient himself or his companion has to be ultra cautious about managing the disease condition. In a slightly longish journey, it is advisable to carry a kit bag containing –
i) a glucometer to check the sugar content in blood intermittently.
ii) a lump of sweet and couple of biscuits, to feed the patient when the sugar level falls and the patient feels discomfort.
iii) A bottle of fresh water and a bottle of sugary drink (if required) .
iv) If the patient is on regular medication do not forget to carry the medicine.
v) If the patient is travelling alone he should either ware a diabetes bracelet or a short medical record.
