Default Airport Security for Diabetics

I was reading the Friday edition of the "Wall Street Journal" and saw where some diabetics were being delayed at security checkpoints in some airports. The article recommends that you carry with you documentation of your disease and/or extra prescriptions indicating the use of lancets and syringe/needles for diabetes. Now I know what these medical devices are used for and obviously the user does too but with this hysteria going on you are always going to run into a "rookie" who may make a scene by demanding the use of such equipment.

Default Re: Airport Security for Diabetics

I saw a lady from my last cruise (ended Sept 17, as security was high) and she had little difficulty getting through. You might find airport security before going thru the metal detector and/or being searched. Or ask the policy and see if you should be talking to a supervisor.
