Plan ahead when flying with diabetes - The Washington Post

Before she boarded her flight from Santiago, Chile, to Buenos Aires, the unthinkable happened to Barbara Rowan: a security screener tried to confiscate her needles.

Rowan, who is a diabetic, needs to carry hypodermic needles with her for medical reasons. So she struck a deal with the Chilean airport officials: The chief purser would hold the packaged needles until the plane landed in Argentina.

For people with diabetes, such challenges are all part of air travel. And thanks to factors such as unpredictable preflight-screening rules and limited availability of food and beverages on planes, it’s not getting any easier. But a few precautions and a little creativity can help you reach your destination without experiencing a health crisis.

Rowan, a retired attorney from Alexandria, Va., made it to Buenos Aires safely. Although her trip took place in 2009, at a time when security officials feared that syringes could be used in a terrorist attack, it serves as a reminder that screening measures can change at any time, and for any reason.

Normal Blood Glucose reading?

What is the normal blood glucose reading for a non diabetic for fasting/after 2 hours of eating/morning check up? I am 21 years old. I heard less then 120 is the normal range but I got confused about when others said its 140 and lower .

I'd say that 140-155 is on the high end of normal and could mean you have impaired glucose tolerance. To know for sure, you could make an appointment with your family doctor to have an oral glucose tolerance test, and then see what your doctor says.
