[IPk] Re: ip-uk-digest V5 #348



Pat

 I am just enroute in Muscat airport returning from a fabulous holiday in
SriLanka and Oman. 2 time changes both ways.

 I tend to change the time on the pump soon after takeoff as my 12 to 3am basal
is very low compared to day time. I would take basal and main meals into account
and then go on a wing and prayer!! I try to eat low carb and always pre order
veggie on flights. I test every two or three hours or so if I feel I should.
Even so my BG levels are volatile and I just correct. I also carry fruit and
biscuits for if am going a bit low. Also Glucotabs and GSF syrup sachets as they
are cheaper than Glucogel

  I always ask throughout the trip for 'no sugar' and interrogate at every meal.
At our main hotel in Hikkadua S.Lanka they catered specially for me as Sri
Lankans are crazy for sugar in everything.
 They even made a sugar free desert for me everyday once they had realised I was
serious.

 in SriLanka the heat of about 29 played havoc with my levels and I ended up
dropping insulin to carb ratio by about 2. I also played around with Basals with
a bit of success

Eating in Oman was easier.

I never mention my Omnipod through security and have hardly ever been stopped.

 I once tried to preorder Veggie and Diabetic on a return BA long distance
flight and was told I could only be one of those! Even the Steward laughed when
he realised what he was saying.
