believe it or not, with diabetes you need to take candies or sugar pills. especially if person is on medications for diabetes. glucose level can drop and hypoglycaemia can be treated best with fast glucose from candies, sugar pills or juice. eat lots and lots of proteins before you leave, this will keep glucose level more or less even. hypertension is harder, make sure you don't overheat, stay away from the sun. keep something that can drop and raise pressure nearby. hawthorn tea can help drop blood pressure and is also good for the heart.
