Air Travel and Diabetes

We continue to advocate for the rights of travelers with diabetes. We work with the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) to ensure that passengers with diabetes have access to their diabetes supplies and equipment, especially during those times when the nation’s security threat level rises and screeners must react quickly to changes in security checkpoint screening protocol.

While we hope that you will not encounter any problems in travel because of your diabetes, we depend on you to keep us aware of any difficulties so that we can provide feedback to TSA. If, at the end of your travels, you wish to report problems to us, please refer to our How to Get Help page.
