Re: [IPk] air travel



And just what are you supposed to do if you use a finger pricker made by a
different company from your meter and/or it has no labelling on? Buy one
specially to take with you on the flight?
My insulin doesn't come with a label on either, saying it's mine. It just
comes in its standard box.
