I've been using a Medtronic Minimed Paradigm pump for nearly 2 years now. (I love it!) I've requested a "travel pump" from Medtronics for an upcoming trip to the Baltic Sea and Russia. I'm curious to hear whether pumpers who've travelled abroad also bring with them insulin (long acting + fast acting) and syringes in the event that they experience pump failure while on their trip? I ALWAYS opt for a pat down at the airport rather that go through any body scanner to avoid even the chance of damage to the pump. Any additional tips or comments are appreciated.
