Abstract

Dose adjustment for normal eating (DAFNE) is a well-established structured education programme for patients with type 1 diabetes. We conducted a retrospective analysis of insulin dose changes associated with DAFNE training. Our results show significant reductions in total, quick acting and basal insulin doses in patients undergoing DAFNE training.
