Re: [IP] High BG During Disconnect?

I do have dawn phenomenon, though I have to do a smaller basal increase a bit 
earlier in the morning.  In any case, I am careful to bolus the appropriate 
amount before disconnecting.  Therefore I am getting all of the insulin I 
should have been getting if I didn't disconnect.
