Sharing a bloggers post: What You Should Know About Flying with an Insulin Pump

http://asweetlife.org/feature/what-you-should-know-about-flying-with-an-insulin-pump/


This is some very good information and I have heard other people on pumps discuss this.  If you are a pumper or know a Diabetic on a pump you should read this.  The writer, Melissa Lee is a pumper and this information is trustworthy.  I have too experienced "baggage claim" low so this would explain what is happening to people who are sensitive to insulin as I am.  
I’ve been pumping insulin for the last 14 years, and I travel frequently.  In fact, I’m on an airplane every couple of months.  
I always struggle with my blood glucose during air travel, and attribute the in-flight fluctuations to the stress of travel, or the crappy fast food breakfast I probably had prior to boarding (must have miscalculated those carbs), or even to sheer diabetes randomness. It was only recently, however, that I learned something critical about insulin pumps and airplanes, something that I hadn’t ever been told – not by device companies, not by my medical team, not by my online friends.
