where people touched by diabetes help each other.
Start the DAFNE course next week has anybody else done it, and has it helped you would like your opinions pls
What is DAFNE?
I have done it and think it is so much better. I feel more in control. I can now eat when and what I want. Within reason of course. And adjust my insulin accordingly.
Living with type 1 diabetes since 2001.

I wanted to but I'm going in a pump soon so it was suggested it's not suitable
DAFNE means Dose Adjustment For Normal Food whatever carbs you eat you adjust the amount of insulin you have at the moment it's confusing hopefully after the course it will became clearer

My son was recently diagnosed (2 weeks ago) with T1D... He is 11 and is currently the only child in his K-8 elementary school... Any words of wisdom for a new dad with a son with T1D? Other than, just treat him like you would if he didn't have T1D...
