Re: [IP] Question about bg's at bedtime



I'm not sure I'd want to go to bed if my BG was under 80, but.  One of the nice
things about the pump is that he's not at the mercy of the NPH or whatever
"background" insulin he's taking.  He and the Doc can probably work out a basal
rate that will give you the results you want.
