Will they let me take my insulin in my hand luggage on the plane?

People with diabetes can still take insulin with them onto aircraft despite new security restrictions.  Those traveling should bring a letter from their doctor explaining their need to carry syringes/injection devices and insulin. The doctor’s letter explaining your need for insulin and injection devices should be presented to the airline staff, and if you do encounter any problems you should request to speak to a manager or senior member of staff.
