Re: [IP] Question about flying



I'm not sure of specific airline policies, but it is my understanding that
you need the insulin boxes with the printed prescriptions. I have flown
several times in the past six months. I do get stopped about the pump when
going through security and have had to produce my prescription labels only
in Denver's airport (United). Generally people are OK with it when you
explain, as others have mentioned. One guy who searched my bag was even a
type 2 and we had a good chat about D.
