Dose Adjustment For Normal Eating (DAFNE)

SGH is the only centre in Asia that offers the Dose Adjustment For Normal Eating (DAFNE), a self-management program designed for adults with type 1 diabetes.

DAFNE provides participants with the skills to calculate how much insulin they need for the carbohydrate-containing food they want to eat, and to manage their diabetes more effectively on a day-to-day basis.

DAFNE is based on:

  • Injecting quick acting insulin each time carbohydrate-containing food is eaten
  • 1 or 2 injections of long acting (background) insulin each day
  • Testing blood glucose levels before each meal and before bed
