Take your insulin on board with you (so it doesn't overheat or freeze), get a letter from your Dr (some places need it) take some spare needles/infusion kits too and your hypo treatment of choice

Make sure you've got enough strips (I've heard some people can hypo on a plane easier) and walk around if you can (to avoid dvt - pressure stockings can help too)

Go online to diabetes.org and look at "living with diabetes" then "know you're rights" then "discrimination" then "public places" then "air travel and diabetes" There is a lot of info there.

Keep your insulin with you. In your hand luggage. A letter from your doctor to cover you, just in case or a copy of your repeat prescriptions as well
