As the number of people who travel continues to increase, so too will the number of travelers with diabetes. This increase will come with new and more frequent requests for medical travel advice. This article equips clinicians with the tools to address patient concerns about travel and to empower patients to be prepared for emergency situations both abroad and at home. This includes encouraging patients to obtain a travel letter, bring enough supplies for the trip, and have a plan to manage time-zone changes.
