Re: [IP] Night basal testing according to Insulin Pumpers



You might be, but you didn't put in the bg levels here, so how do you think
it needs to change? Where are you high? where are you low?
You'll have to test during the time of your normal sleep, and yes, you can
adjust the two basal settings....You should be able to go to the basal
rates, and when you get to a time you want to change the setting in, you do
so. Check afterward for a couple of days...I'd need more data....what were
the bg's, and what do you want them to be..etc.
   You can write to me off-list if you'd like to.
