What's a DAFNE course really like? Ross finds out | #TakingControl | Diabetes UK
We wanted to find out exactly what happens on a diabetes education course so we filmed Ross as he went on a DAFNE course in south-east London.
DAFNE education courses are for people with Type 1 diabetes. They give people the skills to estimate the carbohydrate in each meal and to use the right dose of insulin. There’s loads of help about fitting diabetes into everyday life, whether it’s going out for meals, exercise, holidays, what to do when you’re sick and even pregnancy.
DAFNE courses are run by specialist diabetes dietitians and nurses so they’re a great chance to ask the questions you’ve always wanted to ask. You’ll also get to talk to other people with Type 1, swap tips and share your experiences.
