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

Need breakfast ideas that don't spike blood sugars
I'm going to get my first pump ever and I need to fill out papers for the one I want tomorrow. which is better from anyone's experience with the pumps and which did you like best and why ? :D thx.
My a1c is 8. I've only had diabetes for 3 yrs. I don't know how much damage I may have caused, But I have leg pain a lot (my endo asked about leg pain but I said no ... I was scared) what could it be?
I have been been getting really low blood sugar (around the 50s) ever since I came back to college a week and a half ago. I'm usually in class when it starts to happen or really far away from my dorm. Also I eat a healthy well balanced breakfast and lunch. The only thing is that I have to walk a lot since it is a really big campus. It is really scaring me. Does anyone have any opinions on what can help me?
Hi does anyone have dexcom G4 sensors or a transmitter. Mine is about to die. And I'm like 2 months from getting my new insurance. If you could help out, I will before we grateful!! :)
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!
What insulin do the type 1s out there use? I've always used novolog (used to use levemir and novolog before pumping), but curious what others use and why? What's the fastest acting insulin out there?
Hello all again I am also looking to get an omnipod for my son but our insurance will not cover a pump for him since we have the same insurance.....
Anyone have a new Medtronic insulin pump 723 they'd be interested in selling? Insurance won't pay until next year and we really need one before then.
