Diabetes meds to be kept cold

Vettelover mentioned his diabetes meds that need to be kept cold, and we have friends who have the same situation. Does anyone know if the hotel will store these for you while you're waiting for your room to be ready? I can't imagine they'd make you leave them in a hot car!

Yes they will. I have arrived a few times before my room was ready and Bell Services was more than happy to keep my medicine cold, they (all the resorts) have refrigerators and freezers at the Bell Services area, and they put my cooler right in the fridge. Just be sure to explain to them that the meds have to be kept cold but not frozen so that they will not put the in the freezer section.

That's good info to have -- thanks for the question and answer Annie and Vettelover. I had no idea they could do this.

I wonder if it'll work for lunch leftovers until your room is ready... Wink

Ha ha! My guess is NO, admin!

Good info, though -- thanks.

I just wanted to add that for anyone needing to keep diabetic injectables cool, I have found, ordered, received and tested a wonderful product designed to keep your insulin cold during transport, either flying or driving. It is called a FRIO wallet. (google FRIO) It comes in three parts, a liner, a cooler and a pouch. It comes in different sizes designed to hold whatever your insulin requirements, and it does so with NO REFRIGERATION needed. All you do is soak the cooler in cold water and it will keep the contents that you put in it, cold for up to 45 Hrs. I purchased mine from one company on line who was quite a bit les expensive than others. If you are interested in the Co. let me know and I will look it up and let you know the name. I purchased a large for carrying up to 5 pens and a small for carrying one pen around the parks. They are great, and I do not own shares in the company!!

I had no idea something like that existed, but it sure makes sense that it does. I have a couple of friends who will be very glad to know about this.

I have a friend with type I diabetes. He manages it with the little box on his belt where he just dials in how much insulin he needs. I have no idea how he travels though. I've never seen him with a vial, but he must reload that box somewhere.
