to embark upon my first flight as a diabetic! In keeping with knowledge gained from other type 2s, I have not
declared to the airline that I am a diabetic because I know that I would go on a worldwide blacklist and be doomed to bloody awful 'airline diabetic' food forever. That would be especially bad if I fly back to the UK (from Australia)
. So, to some questions; I'd like to take my testing kit into the cabin with me. Are security people cool with such things? They don't hink you can hijack a 'plane with a softclix pen, do they? Do airport x-ray machines have any detrimental effects on testing strips etc? Does the dry atmosphere on the 'plane have any effect on readings? My flight is a relatively short hop (4 hours!), so it'll be interesting to see what happens.
