Denise,
I have had this same problem with breakfast for all of my 20 yrs of DM.  I've 
been puming 4 yrs.  I've had better luck with the dawn phenom adjustment from 
3am to about 10am.  Also, I've always had a straight carb breakfast, usually 
hot cereal and only about 20 carbs worth. I started a new diet the last few 
weeks trying to lose some weight and ate their suggestion of 1 pc wheat toast 
and 3 egg white/1yoke scrambled, and 16oz of water.  Instead of my bg going 
up to 300, it only went up about 50 pts.  Thought it was just a fluke, but 
its been consistently happening for about two weeks now.  Might be worth a 
try?

Good luck,
Jeanie

<< I need some help making an adjustment of my basals. I can wake up with 
great
 BS's, and no matter what I do, bolus and eat or not eat, I will rise to highs
 of almost 300. I will come back down to normal approximately 3 hours later.
 But in the meantime I feel horrible! From 12am to 6am, I am on a basal rate 
of
 .5 and the rest of the time I am on a rate of .3. I was on a rate of .6 
prior,
 but was waking up with constantly unsafe lows. Any ideas on how to adjust so 
I
 don't spike so high after breakfast, but don't bottom out before or around
 lunch? Thanks again for any help, Denise >>
