Re: [IPk] flying again

remember in the US letters count for very little and you need insulin vvith
a professionally printed pharmacy label, and meter vvith name of
manufacturer. There as some debate bout all other supplies  having pharmacy
label and in original box ( but e can't do that if our supplies don't come
via pharmacy)
