Thank you for visiting We are an online community of DAFNE Graduates, Health Care Professionals, Management and friends and family of those with Type 1 diabetes.

What is DAFNE? - Most people with Type 1 diabetes in the UK inject their insulin between two and four times a day. They try to adjust their doses of insulin according to their blood glucose level and to suit their lifestyle. The DAFNE training programme is designed to make it possible for you to have a much greater choice with food. DAFNE will enable you to eat largely as you want, while still keeping your blood glucose levels under control. As well as providing you with the skills necessary to estimate the amount of carbohydrate in each meal and inject the right dose of insulin, DAFNE also covers strategies for managing your dosage when exercising, during illness and when eating out or drinking alcohol.
