Please advise whether I can place the Lantus insulin injections in a fridge whilst on an international flight. Also will I encounter any difficulty taking the insulin pens on board the flights

Many thanks

Dear Irene,

Keep your Lantus in a small cooler travelling bag with your hand luggage with a cold pack insitu.
You will need an official letter from your travel clinic, or GP/Endocrinologist that must state you are an Insulin dependant diabetic. Name of medication been taken with you. Also letter must state how long you will be travelling as well as clearly stating that the medicines are for your own use and not for resale. Without this letter you will not be allowed to take any injections on board any flight. Keep all medications in theit original packaging.

Regards,
Pete.
