- Small Blood Glucose Meter with finger pricker and test strips
- Insulin for the time you will be away from home (short acting for short aways, short and long acting for longer aways).
- Enough candy to last you through any low blood sugar episodes
When I was a kid, I didn’t like to carry these things with me because my parents always wanted them to be carried in a “special diabetes case” fanny pack. Whatever. Carry these things in a socially acceptable way. For me today, that’s a briefcase. For you, it might be a backpack.
That’s all you need to live without fear of immediate death as an insulin-dependent diabetic.
If diabetes is your only health concern, you don’t need anything else. This is it.
