When obtaining a quote for Travel Insurance to cover High Cholesterol, you will be asked several questions.
- Has a blood test ever shown your cholesterol level to be raised?
- Have you been advised to take Medication for High Blood Pressure?
- Have you ever been a smoker?
- Pack more Medication than you would usually need to allow for delays. In case of lost luggage, split the Medication between carry-on and checked bags, and bring a note or prescription from your doctor.
- Maintain your Medication intake whilst on holiday, as well as a healthy diet and exercise regime to keep your cholesterol levels down. Avoid foods with high fats or high cholesterol levels when eating abroad.
- Pack healthy snacks and consider booking accommodation with a kitchen to control your diet better.
- Ensure your diet has a lot of fibre while travelling and abroad. Carry fibre supplements.
- If you have High Cholesterol, you may have an increased risk of Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT). This is when blood clots form in the legs or pelvis. To reduce this risk, walk down the plane aisle every hour and stretch in your seat.
- Check where the nearest hospital or clinic is to where you are going and make a checklist of your medicines (including the brand name and generic name) and terms of drugs that are commonly used to treat High Cholesterol.
