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

Hi everyone! I need help with choosing a pump :( I have tons of pamphlets that do a great job selling the product but I want to hear personal opinions. How expensive is the upkeep for them?
Anyone have suggestions for where to place a Dexcom cgm sensor? I would normally use my abdomen, but because of pump sites, it's pretty beat up there. Has anyone tried the back of the arm? The idea freaks me out but I may try it.
I'm in desperate need of a blood sugar monitor for the day(preferably one touch verio,but really anything).thankss
It seems to me that there are support communities and organizations for kids with T1 diabetes, college kids with T1 D, and their parents. Do adults with T1 D not need support?
DESPERATE for pump supplies! either silhouette or quick set infusion sets. no insurance and I've been trying to sell anything of value on Craigslist to come up with the money for them, but no luck!
Need breakfast ideas that don't spike blood sugars
In the endos office, and the resident just told me my symptoms are because of my "poorly controlled" diabetes. Lol She then went quiet when endo came in and we discussed my regime, adj & fine tuning
I am in the market for my first insulin pump. I will either chose the Animas Vibe with the Dexcom 4g CGM or the MiniMed 530G with Enlite. Please vote on which you would chose. Thank you!! :)
Pump question! Is the Animus vibe compatible to the G5 sensors?
Upgraded to the Dexcom G5 I have my Dexcom G4 W/ Share Transmitter (only) available for someone. Started using it late Aug so there is good amount of life left in it. Looking for $100 plus shipping.
