Re: [IP] Those Darn Highs with Rapid Drops

How long since the previous bolus?  I find with the Wizard (which 
supposedly keeps track of how much active insulin you still have in 
your system) I can be at 200 to 300 and it figures the correction is 
totally offset by the insulin already taken.  If I tried to override 
it and correct for the high I probably would crash.

btw, I couldn't follow my usual exercise routine while away (30 min 
to an hour a day on rowing machine and/or stationary bike) and had to 
up all my basals by .05U/hr and was still running high.  So far I'm 
keeping the higher basals, assuming it will take a few days for 
regular exercise to take effect, but I'm going heavy on the testing.
