Hello-- I will be doing a long distance hike this summer in Switzerland (G'wald to Sargans) with someone who is a Type 1 diabetic. She requires multiple insulin injections each day, and will be bringing a supply of syringes from home. She is wondering:
- Does she need any special papers to bring her insulin syringes into the country? (It will be a 2 week hike for her, so this will be something like 50 syringes.)
-How difficult would it be, and what papers would she need, to obtain additional insulin syringes from a pharmacy in Switzerland, should she run out?
- Where can one properly dispose of used insulin syringes?
Specialized questions, I realize, but am confident that someone on this forum will have the answers.
