> less than 200. I felt really bad.  I just bumped up all my basals by

> didn't want to take any chances.  Have been in DKA and lactic
> acidosis at the same time---thought I was a dead girl, so I am
> gunshy.  Will try this again next cycle.  Usually the week before is
> really bad for me anyway (before the pump).  If you find out any
