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

Is anyone on an insulin pump and using novolog insulin? I'm currently using apidra insulin in my pump but now my insurance decided not to cover it anymore so now I need to switch FAST. My insurance covers novolog so I was wondering if this insulin is any good? Has anyone had any problems with it?
