Re: [IP] Changing Basal rates after vacation

In a message dated 99-01-05 21:26:41 EST, you write:

<< Now that school is getting ready to start back (if all the snow ever gets
cleared off the road), how do you adjust basal rates for the first day of
school?  Do you just set the basals back to what they were before school ended
all at once, or do you watch the pattern and adjust as necessary?  >>
When they do go back to school, you might want to find out what the activity
schedule is and adjust accordingly. You might also want to review how to lower
the basal temporarily, or stop the delivery for unexpected emergencies. Pack a
few extra snacks just in case.
