My son is diabetic (Type 1), has been living with it for 11 years now, takes insulin every day and he just carries his supplies in a lunch kit. One of those nylon insulated ones. We keep his spare insulin in the fridge but when he runs out it just lives in the lunch kit till it gets used up.

You have the right attitude, there's no reason you can't do anything you want. Just pay attention to your body, most diabetics get a "signal" that they're going low. My son's legs hurt, so he knows he needs to eat or drink juice, chew on a few glucose tablets etc. if his legs are hurting. Don't ignore the signal! especially if you're riding at the time. Just carry small snacks, and Jeffrey likes the glucose tablets cause they're small and fit in his pocket and they don't get all squished etc. Sorry a lot of this may not apply to you with Type 2 but all I know is Type 1.

Good luck!
