The writers in the links below each write about some interesting situations on airline travel and insulin pumps. I have been a pumper 9 years now. I travel a lot for both business and pleasure, I was traveling several times per month for 4 years with the pump. Once I landed and checked into a hotel I had to change my set and reservoir. I found that the pressure differences in the place cabin caused my sugars to rise. Now I change my set just before a trip and I change it again once I checked into a hotel or return home. Anyone else notice these problems with airline travel. Reade the links first to see if these things have happened to you.
