 I am a T2, but inculin dependant for the last 15 yrs. I have insulin resistance
and can understand your chalanges.
 My C:I ratio is 4:1, except for am when i put it at 3:1. I run a basil rate of
2.0 at night, but turn it up to 2.8 from about 4-10 am.
 I know I'm a male, and my wife of 40 years keeps reminding me that our bodies
are different, but I thought I'd give you a flavor of my goofy body. I raise and
lower my basil about 5 times during a normal day. If I have a typical day, I can
use the bouls wizard and have good luck to get back to 100. I do get readings in
the 50's and the occasional puch to 200, but its' either exercise or
site/absorption problems.
 Hang in there. You seem to be doing the right thngs. Just make little changes
and keep tracking bg numbers.
