My 14 year old son was recently diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes. Our family (including him) are scuba divers (PADI open water divers), and usually take one or two dive vacations each year. I was wondering if anyone had personal experience -- have you been able to take a teen with Type 1 diabetes on a scuba vacation, while diving on a boat with a dive operator? I know that you would need to provide a signed note from your doctor but even with that, will a dive master or dive operation agree to it? You can't hide it because we'd be testing blood glucose's before and after each dive, and besides, hiding it would be unsafe. The dive master would need to know.
