Help for Type 1 diabetes diet plan

SINGAPORE: The Singapore General Hospital (SGH) has launched a programme that gives Type 1 diabetes patients more freedom to manage their diets. With the Dose Adjustment for Normal Eating (DAFNE) programme, they can decide to eat what they like when they like. DAFNE is a five-day course that teaches Type 1 diabetic patients how to manage their insulin to carbohydrate intake. SGH said it is the only centre in Asia to offer the programme. Participants in the programme are also given a carbohydrate portion booklet produced by SGH that lists over a hundred foods and drinks and their corresponding carbohydrate amounts. The lists includes local specialities such as bubor cha cha, yellow noodles and bandung. Type 1 diabetes occurs at any age, causing the body to produce little or no insulin.
