Everyone knows that travelling is good for us in many different ways. And chronic conditions like diabetes, heart disease, asthma, HIV, and serious allergies shouldn’t stop you from enjoying the benefits of travel. Sure, extra precautions are needed for long flights, unfamiliar weather conditions, high altitudes and unsanitary conditions. Just follow these basic tips.
When we travel outside of our normal environment, we can’t always predict how our body will react. Your medical kit should include preventive and curative remedies such as antihistamines and corticosteroids. Keep all of your medication in your carry-on just in case your checked luggage gets lost. And always carry multiple copies of prescriptions, ideally in English, to avoid complications at customs.
Even if you’re in perfect health, it still pays to be careful. If you have a chronic condition, a complete travel insurance plan is just the ticket to fully enjoy your trip and be ready for anything. Bon voyage!
