Never Check Your Diabetes Bag


Lost luggage: Just about every frequent traveler has had to deal with it.  My own worst loss of luggage happened when I flew to Turkey and my suitcase went to London.

It was the same trip that Mike forgot to pack his glucometer.  Upon arrival in Turkey, instead of heading straight for the beach we ended up walking around a tiny Turkish town in search of underwear and a glucometer.  We found underwear.

The first lesson here is, of course, don’t forget to pack your glucometer.  The second is a reiteration of Catherine Price’s recent tip: NEVER CHECK YOUR DIABETES BAG.  When you travel keep all of your diabetes supplies with you, next to you, on you.  You can’t afford to lose them.
