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 a 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 traveling alone he should either wear a diabetes bracelet or a short medical record.
