My Husband and I are travelling to Spain for 3 weeks in February. Can anybody recommend a Travel Insurance Company that recognises Diabetes Insipidus and Cortisol dependancy please ...

Hi Claire
We used Staysure for our long trip but that is a few years ago now. It was reasonably priced at the time and we felt we were well covered. We are covered under husband's work private health insurance for Europe. See posts from 2013/14 under Travel Insurance. Maria

I have both those conditions and I use World First, they were the only company I could find that would do a joint (with my husband who has cardiac problems) for a multi trip annual policy. Reasonable price for the cover .

Hi Claire, there is also our web page https://www.pituitary.org.uk/information/related-links/travel-insurance/ These are companies other patients have used. Consider too if your bank account has benefit of travel insurance ('free'), but best to call them for any added premium for your hypopit.
We have a travel letter your endo nurse/GP can complete to assist when going through customs with meds, plus helps if you were to need medical help at your holiday destination. I can email you this if you want it pat@pituitary.org.uk

thanks
