Diabetes patient information leaflets

Patient education is a key component of diabetes care. At Torbay, we offer a comprehensive package of education for type 1 diabetes. This includes LIBRA, a course for newly-diagnosed people with type 1 diabetes or those requiring an update on basic principles, and TIFA (Torbay Insulin Food Adjustment), a more advanced course based on DAFNE principles covering intensive insulin therapy and carbohydrate counting.

We also support a programme of community-based type 2 diabetes education across the South Devon area with members of our multidisciplinary team being involved in group education for newly-diagnosed people with type 2 diabetes.
