I have soooooo got to get off my tail and order something. We traveling to Munich for a week at the end of July and that time is almost here. I think that a frio pouch or two seem like the best options for traveling with insulin and making sure things don't get too warm. Am I overlooking something? My son's is on MDI. I just cannot picture anything else because while there will be a small bar/refrigerator in our hotel room (for which I'm bringing a small refrigerator thermometer to make sure it is not running too cold), I don't have any reliable way to have something (like a cold pack) be frozen.
I don't think we'll be in extreme temps but 1) I know how hot planes can get if they are stuck on the tarmac for hours and 2) once there we will be tourists and out and about all day long.
I know for packing to pack 50%-100% more than we think he'll need. And I know not to inject air into the vials before withdrawing insulin while on the plane. And I know from the endo what to do about time adjustments for the lantus shot. I know travel has been discussed before on Juvenation, but if there are any other outstanding unique tips for international travel with a newbie type 1 teen on MDI, let me know.
