One last Question, before leaving,I will be carrying insulin, syringes, and prescription pills with me, i am told to bring a doctors note saying im required to have them, I have not flown since becoming diabetic.
Just wondering if you get harrased carrying needles with you,

I wouldn't expect any problems, though having the paperwork is a good idea. Your only concern may be in remote-ish areas where your room may not have a fridge to store the insulin -- just another thing to check before accepting a room.
My partner travels regularly with insulin and syringes. Always carries a doctors note and has never had a problem.
He has never been too worried about keeping the insulin cool, though of course it is recommended. The insulin seems to have held up on trips of up to 6 weeks in tropical climates ( though I am sure this is not recommended...)

Thanks, i am getting a note just to be safe.
As for keeping the insulin cool, that is a tough one.
Im not sure i can get the type i need there, it's a fairly new kind. So i am trying to find info on a longer best before date, not the ideal one they tell you. A month not chilled they say. If its like the salad dressing in my refrigerator, i will be fine.
I will see what the Doc say's tomorrow.
