    Where do I find insulin and travelling matters in diabetics with regards to flying far East?

    Hi Taiwo,

    Thank you for your question. The resource for this is included in module 4.

    The CAA mentions the following;

    When travelling east the day will be shortened and if more than two hours are lost, it may be necessary to take fewer units with intermediate or long-acting insulin.

    When travelling west the travel day will be extended and if this is more than 2 hours it may be necessary to supplement this with additional injections of short-acting insulin or an increased dose of an intermediate-acting insulin.

    The direct link to this is;
