Insulin pumps may be damaged by going thru an airport security scanner .

Diabetes technology and therapeutics has published and article with findings about recent incidents of pump malfunctions,after being forced to go through a scanner by the TSA

And I wonder was the TSSA would say about that? Will it be "ohh sorry, you can pass through then with no scan" or "then you can't fly. No plane for you!"... hmm :innocent:

I must not fear. Fear is the Mind-Killer. It is the little death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear.
I will permit it to pass over me and to move through me. And when it is gone I will turn the inner eye to see it's path.
When the fear is gone, there will be nothing. Only I will remain.

You may think you're cool, but you'll never be as cool as Peter Capaldi with an electric guitar, on a tank, playing the Doctor Who theme.

Geeze... that's not good.
I have a friend with that pump and frequently flies.
