Ruth I have different carb/insulin ratios for each meal and five different 
basals.
Midnight-3   .7
3-6:30       1.3
6:30-12     1.0
12-7          .9
7-12          .6

And then it changes if I exercise I lower by .2 and if I am menstruating it 
goes up.  I found it to be more helpful to have many different basals then 
trying to bolus to cover highs all the time.
