I have been on the DAFNE course and like most people, I found it really good. However, now on a pump, I wondered if there was "conversion material" I could access to make the principles relevant to a pump user? I guess that the main approach is the same - carb counting, recording, step approach etc - but there must be some difference or there wouldn't be separate courses.
Can anyone help on this, please?

I use the same principles.
I went on the pump 3mnths after my Dafne course. My consultant tells me the changes to make to ratios etc but I'm on a lot less insulin, actually eat more now, and no change to hba1c so pump was definitely the best move!
