Travel can make it hard to keep your blood sugar within your target range because of changes in time zones, meal schedules, and types of foods available.
Whenever you need to see a doctor away from home, let him or her know you have diabetes. And always wear medical identification. In an emergency, medical identification lets people know that you have diabetes so they can care for you appropriately if you are unable to speak.
