Guest article: Long-distance hiking with type-1 diabetes

Since my 17. I have had diabetes mellitus since I was. As a type 1 diabetic, I suffer from an autoimmune disease in which the body is no longer able to produce insulin on its own. In the meantime I lead a quite normal everyday life with it, thanks to helpful devices such as insulin pump and modern measuring instruments. When I decided to hike a bit further on the Munich-Venice dream path, however, I had to prepare myself a bit more specifically. Because when doing sports or strenuous physical activities, the control of blood glucose levels is especially important.

Disappointed I did not find any experience reports or tips at that time. For this reason I would now like to take the chance and share my experience. As a diabetic who wears an insulin pump, you have to deal with the usual challenges of long-distance travel, such as changing catheters under skeptical eyes and not always sterile conditions in the sleeping quarters, or the fear of hypoglycemia during the night. The requirement to eat, although one is actually too tired to chew. Additional luggage such as spare pumps and devices, insulin, catheters, reservoirs or measuring strips that have to be lugged along, as well as an endless supply of dextrose and granola bars. Long-distance hiking is a challenge in itself, but as a type 1 diabetic it is even more so. But all this should not stop you from going for a hike!
