    Note - I had originally posted this topic at [http://www.lonelyplanet.com/thorntree/thread.jspa?threadID=2361034] but I have been advised this is the best section to post on. Any help or advice will be much appreciated.
    Hi all, please bear with me while I explain my situation in a little detail.
    I am Type-1 Diabetic (Insulin dependent) and I am planning to go travelling for 5.5 months between February and July next year. My flights are booked and I am spending about 2 months in SE Asia followed by 3.5 months in South America! :D I plan to visit Northern Thailand, Cambodia, Vietnam, Laos in SE Asia. I plan to visit Chile, Bolivia, Peru, Ecuador and Colombia in South America.
    I have tried talking to various NHS doctors about this and I think their hands are tied in terms of what advice they can give. All they seem to know or want to say is that I should take enough insulin with me to cover the duration of the trip. Therefore I was hoping to see if anyone has any actual experience of this.
    I use Levemir and Novorapid disposable pens which need to be kept refrigerated. When out of the fridge they last for only up to 28 days, and only when stored at room temperature or below.
    I have worked out that per month the maximum I will use is 3 Levemir pens and 5 Novorapid pens. Between the two trips I have a couple of days in the UK where I will be re-stocking on insulin. So in total I will need 6 Levemir/10 Novorapid for my SE Asia trip and 11 Levemir/18 Novorapid for my South America trip. However, I understand that you should take about 2x what you need just in case, so I will need 1220 pens and 2236 pens for each trip. Getting this number of pens in the UK to take with me will not be a problem.
    I will be mainly staying in hostels and I will kindly ask the hostel owners if they have any private fridges with space I can put it in (Will be happy to pay extra for this), or if not to store my insulin in communal fridges.
    I will also be investing in Frio bags to store my insulin in when travelling between towns/cities. Also if I end up somewhere more remote where there are no fridges at all I will hope to use these bags to keep my insulin as cool as possible in such interim periods. Using the numbers above I have worked out I will need 7 of the largest Frio bags (holds 8 pens) and one smaller 2-pen bag to carry around with me day to day.
    So far as I understand you activate the Frio bags by placing in cold water. Do you then place the pens in the bags and they then do their magic and keep the insulin cool for up to 2 days? Can you just repeat this indefinitely to keep your insulin cool or once the bags have been used is there a wait period where you need to let them dry before using again?
    So to ask some key questions:
    1) Have you any experience using Frio bags? Am I right in thinking I can use them in the way described above? Does my strategy for keeping my insulin cool seem okay to you?
    2) Have you any experience with hostels and insulin in either of the two regions I plan to visit? Are there generally fridges that you can put the insulin in? Any problems with theft?
    3) In any eventuality there will be some risk of the insulin going bad or getting stolen. Does anyone have any experience of buying insulin in the areas I am visiting? Will I be able to pick it up in most places in case of emergency or in major cities only? Will I need some sort of letter from my doctor or prescription or can I just buy it? What kind of a cost is there?
    4) Do you have any tips on the best value insurance for pre-existing conditions such as T1 Diabetes?
    5) Any other tips, advice or things I should know?
    Many thanks for any help or insight you can give on just any of these. I have done my best to search and get to this point but there really seems to be a lack of solid information on how to travel with Type-1 Diabetes for multiple months :(

    Diabetes UK has information on travel & diabetes Most of it is stuff you probably already know, but toward the bottom is info on insurance policies they sell.
    Diabetes travel insurance from another company.
    This might be helpful Backpacking for 1 yr - 6 months SE Asia, 6 months South America!. I had to keep clicking around pop ups to get to it. A poster suggests that the best pace to restock in SEA is Bangkok. There are a number of reputable clinics and pharmacies there. You might want to get suggestions from the Thai branch. Thailand has rules about certain drugs--they are only available from clinics or pharmacies associated with hospitals.
    Santiago might be your best best in South America.
    Levemir and Novorapid are licensed for sale in Thailand. Both are also licensed in Chile; I didn't look at other South American countries.
    You might want to get your prescription translated; a Spanish translator is going to be easier than Thai. You might also want to talk to your doc about a letter or some other documentation of your diabetes, should you need to consult a physician or prove to some cop that you are not drunk.

    I cant help with most of your queries, but I can answer regarding the Frios:
    So far as I understand you activate the Frio bags by placing in cold water. Do you then place the pens in the bags and they then do their magic and keep the insulin cool for up to 2 days?
    >Can you just repeat this indefinitely to keep your insulin cool
    >or once the bags have been used is there a wait period where you need to let them dry before using again?
    No, you dont need to wait for them to dry fully to re-charge them. You can re-immerse at any point, as long as keep a careful eye on how much water they absorb - too much and they overexpand and you cant fit any drugs inside. Play with them a lot before you start travelling so you can get a feel for how they work.
    I've used Frio bags a fair bit, not for Insulin but for other syringe based medication. They work well. In very dry heat they will last a couple of days between needing a top up. In high humidity they aren't as effective, because there is very little evaporation going on, so you need to be a little bit more attentive, but generally they still keep things cold enough.
    My concern for your planning is that the bags need to be exposed to the open air for the evaporation to take place. I carry mine in the net pocket of my backpack (where you normally keep a water bottle), and that works well, but you will have too many Frios to fit in there. To have 7 of them all exposed simultaneously you'd have to have them tied all over the exterior of your packpack, which doesnt sound like a great idea.
    So I'd say you need to combine Frios with some of Nutrax's tips for restocking above, and travel with much smaller quantities.
