Re: [IP] 288 high sugar help!



If you skipped all of the UL in your morning shot, you didn't have any
basal insulin running around in your system.  I'm guessing this is what
caused the high.  The humalog may have covered your carbs, but it
did nothing for the insulin the rest of your system was looking for.
