[IP] basal estimator / fudging numbers



last night geneva had numbers from 10 pm until wakeup that were in the low
200's but within about 20 points of each other.

I would like to try using the basal estimator,  but realize that it doesn't
work if you are typing in BG's that are higher than 150.

will it still work, and will I still come up with a reasonable result if I
'fake' geneva's numbers and just reduce them all until they reach the
acceptable basal estimator levels?

I.E.:  instead of putting in the 10 pm reading of 170,   I enter  100  ( as
a start base)
        instead of .....................2 am   ..............
190................121  (up 21 points)
        .....................................7 am
...............211................142   (up 21 points)

won't I get the same mathematical results?  can I rely on my "new" estimates
to correct geneva's high levels?

thanks, michael!

who is changing everything around this week so that geneva can go to camp
without testing at night.  ( I know, I know...we really can have her
test...but I would like a more comfortable nighttime basal  graph)
