We believe all adults with type 1 diabetes should have access to high-quality training in the use of insulin, so they can live their life with as few restrictions as possible and still achieve blood glucose results within healthy targets.
Going on DAFNE was like a light going back on in my life after 13 years of living in the gloom.Judy, Norwich
Don’t underestimate the impact that DAFNE has had on our lives. Not just us, but those around us too. My wife and my girls have got a husband and dad who is much more relaxed about his type 1 than before 2007, and I really believe that DAFNE allowed me to be a better father. I got my life back through DAFNE – a bit of a cliché but no less true for that.Stew, Norwich
