All You (Insulin-dependent Diabetic) Need To DO ANYTHING

  1. Small Blood Glucose Meter with finger pricker and test strips
  2. Insulin for the time you will be away from home (short acting for short aways, short and long acting for longer aways).
  3. 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.
