Hello there :)

Can anyone tell me what (if any) restrictions there are on insulin dependent diabetes and travel within Thailand/Cambodia/Vietnam?

I've got all the usual stuff (repeat prescriptions, letters from doctors, travel insurance etc, etc).

Any advice on what other fellow diabetic travellers have experienced would be fantastic.

Hi Pamela,

No worries, there are many expats living here in Chiang Mai with diabetes including friends of mine. Prescriptions are easily filled at most drug stores.

My girlfriend has diabetes and will be meeting me in Thailand next October, how much will it cost her to get insulin when she is out there?
