(or even t+4). Also, even while it may peak at about 90 minutes to two
hours for many people, there is still a tail that continues for another
hour or two.

The other possibility is that the basal rate is wrong. If it is too high or
low, that could compound the problem. Obviously if the BGs were
consistently stable after t+2 or t+3 then this would not necessarily be a
