Default Lancets

One member of our party, for an upcoming cruise, tests blood sugar levels once or twice a day. Although he does not have any meds or needles, is there a problem carrying lancets? Would he need a Dr.'s letter or is this not a concern at all? Thanks.

I would think that as long as he has the meter and test strips he shouldn't have a problem.

I carried lancets with me on numerous flights and cruises in the last year.
They were in my carry-on.
Although I had a doctor's statement I was never asked for it by any security personnel.
Agree that a doctors statement should be taken in case of questions.

I carried my lancets on several flights in my carryon luggage last year. No questions, no problems.

Thanks for all of the advice. A doctor's note will be taken just in case. I guess you never know these days, so it's better to be prepared.
