RE: [IP] setting basals

I would start by consulting your CDE about this. If I were changing I would
lower my basal just  a tad and this can vary from one pumper to the next.
ymmv.In my case I would drop 0.1 units basal but set my alarm for 12:30 or 1
am and do a check.  If you consult the book "pumping insulin" by john Walsh
it gives a very good section on testing basals. Remember though it is
important to consult your CDE with what you plan to do if you are uncertain
or are relatively new to pumping.  Mike in Canada

 I am new to pumping, just started on an ice blue cozmo on October 28. My
finally says I can take more control over my pumping, so here is my first
question for you all. Right now I have to have an bedtime snack in order to
avoid going low during the night. I want to stop having this snack. I
consistently have a low at 12:30 or 1:00 am. I know I should lower my basal
hours prior to this time but should I do it at 3 hours or somewhere in
3-6 hours. I really need a starting point.
