Thanks for the welcome. I'm glad to have joined. I've been writing a blog for about a year so check it out when you have a chance. http://diabeticmaven.com/?p=269 is about travel and my own bag of "airplance food." It's amazing how we all have similar issues. I've also been using the Dexcom, which does readings every 5 minutes through a transmitter on my abdomen. Feelin' like a robot but it helps this crazy diabetic life of mine.
