[IP] HELP WITH BASALS



Hi List

My daughter Eileen (13) has been having pre breakfast lows tests at 7:00 
a.m. on weekdays and approx. 10:30 a.m. on saturdays and sundays) for the 
last week. Have checked her at 2, 2:30 and 3:00 a.m. and she seems fine at 
these times.

Her basals are:

12:00-3:30a.m.---1.1
3:30a.m.-9:00a.m.---1.0
9:00a..m.-3:00p.m.---0.8 (these are her school hours)
3:00p.m.-8:00p.m.---1.2
8:00p.m.-12:00---1.0

Her basals are working fine during the day. What I'm not sure of, is what 
time should I reduce her night basal. I know the Pumping Insulin book says 
it should be lowered 3-6 hours before the lows occur, but I'm not really 
sure of what to do.
Would like some H E L P , or suggestions.

Thanks, I really appreciate your help.
