DYF Programs are based upon the Diabetes Control and Complications Trial which proved that intensive control of blood sugars was extremely significant in the delay or elimination of the onset of diabetes complications. As a result DYF programs implement and teach:
- Frequent blood sugar checks
- Ketone monitoring
- Carbohydrate counting
- Insulin adjustment to match activity levels
- How to effectively treat episodes of hypo and hyperglycemic reactions
- How to work with schools to provide optimum support
