Hi guys. I don't really belong in this group (I'm only 13), but I've got a question. Since you guys are the "Care Providers" I figured this was answer central. I'm going on a school trip to Washington DC in 15 days (and counting!!) I would like to know what I should pack diabetes wise and what I should plan for on a plane (Midwest to D.C. means a time zone change, too.). I'm on a Medtronic pump, and the trip is 3 days long. My parents aren't coming (FREEDOM!!), so I'm kind of on my own. I want to make sure I get it right. Any ideas?
