Going on holiday should be an exciting experience, but if you have a health concern it can turn into a worrying and troublesome time.
To ease your mind, and to make your travels as seamless as possible, we have taken a look at some health products that might keep your journey stress-free, and put some of those health worries at ease.
If you suffer from high blood pressure and are worried about the health risks that are associated with it, you can purchase a blood pressure which you can take with you on your travels.
Factors such as drinking more alcohol than usual, or a sudden change in diet, such as eating fattier foods, could contribute to change in blood pressure. A small blood pressure monitor will allow you to get an instant reading and stay on top of your blood pressure while you're away from home.
Travelling with a heart condition can be a daunting and anxious time for those suffering, but providing you have been cleared for travel, a portable hand-held ECG machine might give you some peace of mind whilst travelling away from home.
The machine can perform a short recording which will give you an insight into your heart rate and rhythm, and can be used routinely.
For diabetes sufferers it is so important for blood sugar to be monitored regularly both at home and away.
If you suffer from diabetes, and are planning to travel, a small blood glucose tester can be purchased to monitor glucose levels for the entirety of your trip. You can purchase relatively small testers so that you don't need to be concerned about it taking up too much space whilst out and about.
Holidays usually mean forgetting the stress of daily life and enjoying ourselves. Of course, if you have a health concern and medication to take, the idea of forgetting something so important can be quite scary.
There are a lot of mobile phone apps available that can help you to manage your dosages, remind you when to take your tablets, and allow you to check off when you have taken a dosage.
Getting hit with a dental emergency abroad can be both painful and costly. Dental first aid kits are designed to bridge the gap between the dental emergency occurring and the treatment. They can assist with loose crowns and dislodged teeth, but they are only designed for temporary use.
