From Burbank, California, USA:

When traveling by air, is there any problem with taking insulin in the pressurized cabin of a plane? Is there anything special I should do?


It is fine to take your insulin while on the plane. Do not check your insulin with your baggage because of temperature changes (and also the possibility of losing your supplies!).
