I am wondering if anyone else has this problem?

When I fly my blood sugar drops like a stone. I eat my snacks and food on my normal schedule and it does not seem to matter. As soon as I get off a plane I am at 70.

I am learning to always have a glass of orange juice ON the plane instead of water.

Any ideas?

Hmmm…wonder if this accounts for dizzyness when I fly. I haven't flown since I was diagnosed, but when I have flown I've gotten very light headed until we're up and leveled off.
