We take a family vacation to Lake Powell every year where the temperature is about 100-110 degrees F during the day. We could keep things cold or hot but to maintain them between 65 and 85 degrees F would be very difficult. Are there heat stable test strips or ones that you can refrigerate?

I recently went on a trip, left my ACE inhibitors at home by mistake, and couldn’t take them for about six days. I just got home and started them again yesterday. Is this dangerous? Is it bad for my kidneys, heart, body to not take them for a week then start back up? Should I have eased back into taking them (like take a half a pill for a few days)?

I take have started using disposable insulin pens and travel frequently for work (sometimes for weeks at a time). Do you know if the prescription laws for pen needles are the same as for syringes? I know the laws vary by State for syringes, but is there a formal “listing” so I could know before I travel.
