Jeanie, how much do you bolus when getting up?  I've hesitated to change
basals for this, since my spike happens about an hour after I get up
regardless of the time so changing basals requires that I get up at the same
time everyday.  Doesn't allow me to sleep in.  I'm interested in a solution
other than bolusing high for the meal, which sometimes does cause a lower bg
after (which I've corrected by lowering basals after the meal.  Can you give
more detail on how this works for you?  Thanks much, greatly appreciated.
