I can happily confirm that insulin is available for purchase over-the-counter in pharmacies in Colombia. I've bought some myself, I simply asked for it at a pharmacy and paid for it, I required no prescription, or any doctor's note or other evidence that I am Diabetic.

Finding gluten-free and especially vegetarian food is still very tricky in Peru. Why: (Due to differences in languages and culture) Vegetarian food without meat (comida sin carne) often means food without every meat except chicken.
