I would take a prescription too, insulin will be fully understood in Doha though.

 

Hope the flight goes well for them in these difficult circumstances.

I've never had a problem, I have travelled through a variety of places and I tend to make eye contact and gesture towards my insulin before going through security, this has always done the trick x

If you get a chance, take it. If it changes your life, let it. Nobody said that it'd be easy, they just promised it would be worth it!

I know people who travel with insulin and other meds on a regular basis, shouldn`t be a problem, especially if you have a doctor`s note with you. Did she travel such a long distance after she was diagnosed? The flight might throw her off balance a little, have some extra insulin and some hard candy with you just in case. That said, a lot of people fly without ever needing to adjust the insulin dose.

My daughter is type 1 and has taken it with her of course, has letter from the doc but no-one has asked to look at it. Not to say they will not look for it though.

I've noticed that most planes kitted out for longhaul travel have sharps disposal bins in the toilets, presumably for insulin and other injectable medication. You should have no problems.
