(BlackDoctor.org) — Planning a trip? Whether you’re camping or cruising, you can go anywhere and do almost anything. It just takes a little planning ahead to handle your diabetes.
Travel can make it hard to keep your blood sugar within your target range because of changes in time zones, meal schedules, and types of foods available. Check your blood sugar level more often during your time away from home.
Whenever you need to see a doctor away from home, let him or her know you have diabetes. And always wear medical identification. In an emergency, medical identification lets people know that you have diabetes so they can care for you appropriately if you are unable to speak.
