In case of an emergency it is a good idea to pack a few items when you head outdoors- camping, hiking, or walking. A fanny pack with pockets and water bottle is perfect. Always bring water to drink at regular intervals, thirsty or not; dehydration can make blood sugar skyrocket. Stash some hard candies or glucose tablets in one of the pockets. It is also wise to have a cell phone(Charged Up) and making sure you have emergency phone # in your phone for quick reference.
People with diabetes should wear some sort of identification, a medical bracelet or necklace or tag on your watch stating you have diabetes/indicate if on insulin or medication that can cause hypoglycemia.
