I obviously have to bring my glucose meter, lancets, test strips, humalog, 5 pump infusion sets and 5 insulin reservoirs for the pump. (I should only have to use two of the infusion sets and reservoirs but having extra never hurts.) I will also bring a few sensors so my CGM will work. I will also be bringing the quick setter for my infusion site and the sen-serter for the CGM. What if something happens to my pump?? I better grab a couple humalog pens, Lantus pens, needles for the pens. What if I get low?? I should be able to find food easily I'm in the city, but I'm in classes and meetings all day. I better bring some Level, GU, and some jolly ranchers. (more so I have something in my mouth in case I get nervous at any point.) I can't forget the Glucagon either, I haven't had to use it in twenty-two years but it is always safer to have it just in case the worse happens.
I believe that is everything I will need for the week. I will also be packing juice boxes and granola bars so I have something for any lows that may occur while at the hotel or on the road. All of the supplies above have to fit in a book bag that I can carry on to the plane, the last thing I want is for my bag that has all of my diabetes supplies to lost. I will be holding on to that book bag like it has a million dollars inside of it. I think the supplies are more important however, I can live without a million dollars I can not live without my diabetes supplies!!
