Re: [IP] Basal rates

Your numbers below look fairly repeatable.

Did you get up at the same time each day??
Looks like you start to go high at  about 10 - 11 each day. Seems 
consistent to me. 

If you were to plot all the data points normalized to their starting 
values and draw a best fits curve, you should have pretty good data
