IDAP Insulin Dose Adjustment Programme for Type 1 Diabetes
IDAP is a course to teach you how to manage your diabetes by working out how much insulin you need to take for what you want to eat in a fun and informal setting.
You will learn to count carbohydrates and then adjust your insulin doses accordingly. The aim of carbohydrate counting is to allow you to enjoy more dietary freedom to choose, within a normal balanced diet, whatever type or amount of carbohydrate you wish to eat and vary the timing of your meals and snacks .
Download the IDAP information leaflet here.
You will need to be referred by your GP or diabetes care provider.
