Here are a few tips for traveling with Fiasp®:

 

Travel with extra insulin supplies

Bring extra supplies with you in case you are delayed, lose something, or decide to extend your trip.

Travel with diabetes supplies in your carry-on

If you are flying, make sure that you take your insulin and other diabetes medicines with you in your carry-on bag. Checked luggage could get lost or delayed! The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) allows you to bring diabetes supplies in your carry-on.

Keep insulin at room temperature while traveling

Your insulin needs to be kept at room temperature (below 86°F), so be sure not to store it in places like the trunk or glove box of a car, or checked baggage on a flight where the temperature may get too hot or cold.

Inform TSA agents that you have diabetes and are carrying supplies

It is a good idea to let TSA agents know before the security screening process begins that you have diabetes and are carrying supplies.
