In many cases this concern has limited the ability of a diabetic ( or anyone requiring medicine the needs to be kept cool ) to really enjoy themselves and to be able to travel wherever they wished. Often a trip necessitated ensuring that any hotel or motel room included a kitchenette with a fridge or at the very least a mini bar in order to store the insulin.
Over the last several years a number of storage and cooler carrying cases have come on the market which use frozen packs to keep the insulin cool. Unfortunately that has still meant that one has to rely on being tied to a refrigerator in some way.
