Think traveling with diabetes is impossible? Think that diabetes might hold you back from getting the most out of your adventures? It doesn’t have to be like that and here’s the proof. Follow along on my world travels and see what traveling as a Type 1 diabetic is really like. These are my honest reports from the road, different types of trips in all manner of global destinations where insulin doses can only be guessed at and T1D is made all the more challenging by time zones, unknown or unavailable meals, and pharmacies where nobody speaks English. Pick a trip and dive in – traveling with diabetes is a challenge but it’s not impossible. If I can do it, so can you!
