Please notify the TSA officer that you have diabetes and are carrying your supplies with you. Insulin pumps and supplies are not required to be accompanied by insulin, but insulin in any form or dispenser must be clearly identified. For more information, see TSA special procedures.

If you need assistance with screening, you may ask for a Passenger Support Specialist or a Supervisory TSA Officer.

Devices containing lithium metal or lithium ion batteries should be carried in carry-on baggage.  Most other consumer electronic devices containing batteries are allowed in carry-on and checked baggage.

For more information to portable electronic devices, see the FAA regulations.


 The final decision rests with the TSA officer on whether an item is allowed through the checkpoint.
