Despite a diabetes diagnosis, travelling should not be restricted. Instead, people with diabetes should be able to travel the world without too many difficulties, as long as prior planning is considered.

Despite this, there are factors that will come into play when travelling. These include your diet, the level of activity you’ll be undertaking and the climate. Each can have an effect on blood glucose levels and impact your health when overseas.

Of course, you’ll also want to know what equipment and supplies can be taken abroad, whilst understanding the best precautions to take with either type of diabetes. Throughout this guide we’ll address the important matters for travelling with diabetes, such as:

  • Crucial advice for planning your trip.
  • Maintaining health and controlling glucose levels.
  • The effect of different climates on your condition.

This was a difficult decision to make, however the most important thing is to keep Elders and FN communities safe. Donna is in process of contacting those involved: facilitators, registered participants, vendors, etc., to let everyone know that we have had to postpone this event. 
If sick, stay home. Wash your hands, keep your sneezes and cough to yourself, into a tissue or your sleeve. Together through being vigilant we can keep communities safe and get thru this. Thank you all for your understanding.
