RE: [IP] How do I know when basals are set correctly?

Antonio in LA, You are correct about the Basals being set so you could go
all day with no fluctuations. But you forgot that you will have fluctuations
from other factors. The rule is that it should not fluctuate more that 30
mg/dl. Mine is set so that the reading I have at 8:00PM is within 30 mg/dl
of the reading I get at 6:00AM. On most normal days (What ever that means)
it is within 10 mg/dl.

Subject: [IP] How do I know when basals are set correctly?

Okay, I thought I understood this, but perhaps I was wrong.  I realize 
in retrospect that I extrapolated the fact that your BG shouldn't change 
much over a few hour span if your basal is set correctly to mean that 
you could go all day without a major BG fluctuation if it was set 
correctly.  I now think that I was wrong in this extrapolation and that 
this is not how you tell that your basals are ideally set.  Because I 
can't get mine to go all day without either going up or down, maybe this 
is not the ideal that I thought it was.
