What happens when I change timezones?

When you travel to a different time zone, it can throw your eating and sleeping schedules out of whack. The change to your schedules can upset your blood glucose levels, so it's important to plan ahead before a trip. Any time changes of two hours or less don't usually require you to change your meal plan or adjust your insulin. But a longer trip can be a different story, so it's important to talk with your doctor before a trip to make sure your body will adjust properly.
