 Unless the negative basal time were the whole night long, I would adjust the
prior basals allowing my bg to rise slightly so that during the "negative basal"
times it would even out. Basically the same type of thing I do for exercise
(except I do it by underbolusing prior to exercise). I'd wonder if the prior
basals were too high causing the IOB to require a "negative basal" to level it
out. For me, since I do not exercise or eat during my sleep my basals are very
stable at night.
