Traveling diabetic #1


Jan here.

Heading to Vietnam for the next six weeks.

First airport security check in George not at all concerned at my bag of needles, insulin and other bits.

I did expect that there would be some level of scrutiny at OR Tambo, and more so in Dubai, for the International flights. However, there were no alarms or questions.

The timing of my insulin jab needing a bit more thought with time zone changes and flight schedules.

The inflight ‘diabetic’ meals offered boiled fish, a tad bland. Broccoli and carrot colour spots. The bread and muffins seemed odd, however easily avoided.

Sugar levels a tad low. Nuts and low carb bars in the travel bag not quite making up for the missed meals during the journey. 

Vietnamese food the next step.
