To the Editor: Security requirements for air travel have recently become very strict and include limitations on the carriage of medication and medical equipment. International flights to and from Australia are often lengthy, and patients needing regular medication can suffer serious complications without it. Diabetic patients are particularly vulnerable, as illustrated by this case.
