  1. Hi everyone I was wondering if anybody had flown a diabetic pet to Australia before and did they cope ok? I have spoke to some UK pet export companies and have had mixed advice. I know that the dog will not receive insulin for up to 24 hours and will also not have any food for this amount of time also. I know with diabetes, this amount of time with neither insulin or food can be lethal and lead to coma's and death. I would hate to put my boy through all the stress only for him to die scared and alone in the plane cargo. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. He is a 8 year old Chihuahua.

  7. Hello my name is Sam. I would like to apologise because I know that this is a completely different topic to what this forum is about. But I could not find anything to do with health and things like that. (I am fairly new to this) I am moving to Australia in the next 2 years or so and I am on Diabetic tablets called Metformin. I am on a 500mg dose and I get it free in England for obvious reasons. But I am on this tablet for life. I also cannot go on any other form of diabetic treatment. Could you please answer me these questions as it is quite important... How do I go about getting this tablet over in Australia? Would it be free? Thank you for taking the time to read my post and for your help. It is much appreciated. Take care everybody :cute:

  9. Hello! I wonder if anyone could help us? My OH is Type 1 diabetic, and we are thinking of re-locating to Oz, but, would this go against us? If anyone could help us, please?! Thanking you in advance.
  10. Does anyone know what the practicalities are of travelling within Oz as a diabetic. Have been on the Qantas website and Diabetes Australia but it seems geared to international travel and not domestic. Any diabetics with recent flying travel in Oz able to say what really happens re security and having diabetic kit on board? My OH has to travel as an emergency to Cairns from Perth on Monday as his father has to have emergency surgery due to a very recent discovery of aggressive cancer and OH has not had to fly since being diagnosed with diabetes so not sure if he needs a letter from the Dr or will his NDSS card do etc. Any advice welcome. Also, anyone who knows of any deals for flights or car hire also welcome. Cheers Julia

    Hi i am looking to go to oz on a working holiday visa. One problem is i am diabetic does anyone have any experience of doing this will it cause problems with getting a visa or whats the deal with getting insulin in oz any help would be appreciated
  13. Hi All Not sure if this is the right place but I have a question. My hubby is diabetic taking insulin that in itself is not a problem as long as it is well controlled, or so I am lead to believe. My question is as we are hopefully going on a 457 visa what would we have to pay for the insulin etc as I have been told some are quite expensive? Also is it possible to purchase it here in the UK and have it posted to Australia by a family member? Any imput would be gratefully received.:wubclub: ktb08
  14. Hello all We are Lin and Roger, friends of April & Richard (Mr & Mrs C ) We have not started our process as yet but would like to know if there is anyone who is a Diabetic out there. If so have you come across any problems with your Med's. Spent some time in Oz last year, and loved it there, visited Sydney and Victoria. Roger did the bridge climb (Sydney)but I stayed on the ground. It took nearly three hours. Would be good to hear from you! Lin & Roger

    diabetic advice

    hi, looking for some info. i was planning to apply for a contributory parents visa. i was diagnosed diabetic in march 07. type 2 treated by diet and medication. contacted australian embassy re this for their medical advice. couldnt give me any advice as such only that i would have to apply first and an answer would be made when my medical documents were submitted.. does anyone have any knowledge as to anyone else applying who is diabetic ?. have been accepted / rejected. it may be me, but i would have thought the australian embassy would have been able to give a more reasonable answer to an enquiry at this stage without having to put applicants through the whole application process, before being accepted / rejected. they appear to have a very negative atitude towards applicants. any help appreciated ringo
