Since my diagnosis of T1 diabetes a couple of years ago i have traveled on a plane a few times. Each time my sugar drops dramatically so I ALWAYS have to keep some orange juice with me. Then, a few months ago, I went up north for a couple of days and my sugar was constantly dropping the entire weekend. I have asked my doctor and he said that altitude shouldnt affect my BS at all but I can tell that it does. On one of my plane rides my sugar dropped all the way down to 38 which is the lowest it has ever been. I thought I was going to pass out. Does altitude affect anyone else's sugars?
