    A friend of mines son has Diabetes and as such has to travel with his meds in his carry on. They will be going to Scotland in August and Im wondering what is the best and legitimate way to keep the Insulin cool for the flights.
    I have heard of everything from bags of ice that will melt enroute to the permanent Ice packs. Just wondering what others do that travel regularly with meds that have to be kept cold. Bear in mind that they also have to keep approximately 2 weeks worth cool so that they have enough while on their holiday.
    Thanks

    I work in a hospital. The Pharmacy suppiles our insulins to the medication refrigerator, but the bottles are labelled good for 28 days when stored at room temp; the CPS agrees (even for insulin glargine [Lantus] which we used to keep cool at all times).
    Your friend should double check with her Pharmacist, but I suspect that the insulin should be fine if not kept in a fridge whilst on board the plane.
