From Toronto, Ontario, Canada:

I have read recently that the American College of Obstetricians says that a pregnant woman may fly up to her 36th week of gestation, but a pregnant woman with diabetes should not fly. Can you explain why? This makes no sense to me, especially if she is in good control.


If you have diabetes, you can fly.


[Editor's comment: Two additional thoughts: 1) Check with your physician for specific advice about flying during pregnancy, and 2) read Flying With Diabetes Supplies. WWQ]
