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.

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

It was ok. Knew most of it anyway, but it might help xx
Yes I did it in #### I'm a nurse too, it helps u calculate your carbs and insulin dosage ratio I found it great and my hba1c remained perfect even while eating a normal diet .. Best of luck x

Just a quick question to the type 1 diabetics. How long after a hypo does it take a person to get back to normal. My boyfriend had one 2 weeks ago and I think I'm pushing him a little.
I currently ran out of ketone strips and can not get to any at the moment. Can I just use my actual blood sugar meter and just dip a strip into (tmi) urine? Need advice here! I'm high and feel sick!
