Re: [IP] Basal rates changing



Hi Linda - this is Jose from Orlando, FL. I think that you could
consider about multiple basal rates supported by multiple
carbohydrate ratios - I do that and I am having good results.

One action you can take now - pay attention to the time you have
low (or high) blood sugar levels, but not necessarily change your
basal rate in this time... but 2 hours BEFORE, or the forecasted
time for your body uses the insulin.

You can contact me through email @ redacted Take care.

Jose

Subject: [IP] Basal rates changing


I am finding that over the past few months I have been having to change
basal
rates.  I started out at .6/hr. which was fine for a while then sugars
started to rise.  I went to .7/hr also fine for a while and then sugars
again
started to rise.  I went to .8/hr. sugars were good (toward the low side
sometimes) and now in the past 3 days I am low, low, low.  I am testing
often
and putting in lower temp basals (to see if this helps) which either help a
little or just hold my sugar around 100 and then a few hours later I'm 260.
I see my endo in  1 1/2 weeks.  This is so frustrating I don't know what to
do.  Do others have this problem?  Trying to keep in a good range and not go
too high or too low is becoming more and more of a challenge.

Linda
