"I think it's a really great idea to cover all the things you need to know for travelling with type 1 diabetes in an Ebook. I really love it."
"This book is reassuring to a mother of a type 1 diabetic. It's filled with tips and tricks that have helped us organise our trips away. "
"My biggest fear has always been that diabetes will hold me back from seeing the world. It's inspiring to know there's someone out there proving it can be done."
"This E-book is a wonderful achievement, it's full of really great information and is so good to know it comes from your own experience!"
Definitely not! We designed this eBook with people from all nationalities in mind. In fact, we receive a lot of enquiries from people from America, so much of the information is directly applicable to those from the USA.
This eBook is perfectly designed if you have never travelled before with your diabetes. There are some crucial points to consider before you take a long or even a short trip abroad and these are all covered in detail at the start of the book.
I constantly find that by speaking to other diabetics who have travelled I am able to pick up new tips and tricks to help me; especially with regards to what products I should buy. So it’s likely there are things in this eBook that you have never thought to consider. At the same time, I would love to hear from you if you have lots of experience travelling with diabetes and it would be amazing to share your stories on the blog!
One of the biggest issues as a type 1 diabetic is finding a suitable companion and preparing them for the potential struggles whilst travelling. So this eBook is really useful if you are not diabetic yourself but are travelling with someone who is. There is an entire section written by my travelling companion, Bradley, which gives you a good insight into what to expect and how to be best prepared.
I am not a mother myself, but in writing this I have spoken to plenty of parents who travel with their type 1 child. They have offered some fantastic tips and they are all in here in their own dedicated section. Beyond that, the general advice on how to pack and what to do in an emergency will give you deep insight into your child's condition and what it's like to travel with type 1 diabetes.
We have spoken with all of the major pump and device manufacturers including Roche, Medtronic, Omnipod, Tandem and Animus. As well as essential accessory providers such as Frio and Myabetic. Beyond that, we have mentions and tips for all manner of other products you may need.
I’ve travelled all over Europe, and further afield I’ve covered South America, Bangladesh, South East Asia, including Cambodia, Laos, Indonesia, Vietnam and more. 2018 will see me road tripping New Zealand for 4 months, living in different part of Europe for 4 months and exploring Canada. With all my new experiences, I will be updating this eBook, and you will have access to all of these updates completely free of charge at any time.
The eBook will be emailed to you in PDF format, ready for you to download onto any device, including Kindle, laptops and mobile devices. If you are interested in a printed version of these eBook, please contact us.
The guide is extremely in depth and is not designed to be read all in one go. I would recommend taking some time to read all of the preparation sections before travelling, and then in your own time and whilst abroad, update yourself on other chapters. The eBook is conveniently laid out so it is easy to navigate any points or issues as you need them solved.
