How To Prepare For Travel After A Diagnosis

Food And Dietary Supplements

Next » « Previous


Consider carrying the basics for a healthy diet "just in case."  For instance, if you need particular nutrients or are used to a diet with particular healthy foods such as dry roasted almonds, hummus or powder for a protein drink. Carry enough for the trip, plus at least another day in case you get stuck there.

If you are on a supplement such as Ensure, take what you need.

If you need too much to carry with you, you can send it ahead to the hotel by an overnight service. Many airlines now provide a pick up and delivery service as well. See: Sending Your Luggage Ahead.

Some people have been known to ask the hotel to clean out the minibar before they arrive so they can then fill it with their own food.
