    FYI, in Canadian Blood Services will not allow you to donate blood if you take insulin as it is an injectable medication. I was once told in all seriousness that I would be welcome to give blood if I ever stopped taking insulin… As a person with type 1 diabetes this so far hasn’t happened….

    Wil, unfortunately it’s not just the Isle of Man. I lived in Ireland during those years and have not yet been able to give blood because of this. ;-(

    Why would the airline lose your insulin in the first place? Especially since insulin should NEVER be stored in hold luggage as it will freeze and go bad!
