Apparently, the ADA has been in discussion with the authorities in the US
and they advise the following:

1    Don't bother with a doc's letter, as these are too easily forged
2    Bring meters and lancet devices in hand luggage only if both carry the
same name printed clearly on them, eg all Roche products or whatever.
3    Re syringes, pumps, pens etc. Carry a vial of the insulin you are using
wearing a printed label from the pharmacist with your name, the name of the
insulin etc. This should be on a box of insulin, or a box of pens or
whatever original packaging the insulin comes in.

These are the instructions for USA, but will certainly be sufficient in
