No. The DAFNE course is delivered over a 5-day period. During this time participants practice dose adjustment at lunch times with the group. During the evenings participants are encouraged to experiment by eating out, exercising and cooking meals. Their choices/experiences are discussed with the group the following morning. In total participants have about 12 opportunities to practice personal insulin dose adjustment, plus all the experiences they gain discussing the choices made by the other course participants. So during the week there is ample time for practice.

In general a lot of people have needed smaller insulin doses than they did before DAFNE. It may be that the type of insulin won't change but DAFNE enables you to fine tune your insulin needs.
