The purpose of this class is to provide information to patients with type 1 diabetes that will help them to learn appropriate insulin self-adjustments. Specifically, the classes will address what is a carbohydrate ratio, correction factor, how to figure out a correction factor and correction dose. We will also discuss what a pre-meal or bolus dose is. A practice worksheet will be available for practice. Patients’ understanding of the knowledge will translate into specific skills. Patients will be frequently assessed to determine their comprehension of knowledge and acquisition of skills.
