[IP] Donna's basals
I beg to differ with Michael's response to Donna:
> >My schedule of insulin is as follows:

> Sounds like your basal rates needs adjusting.
> your ratio is constant, a part of your current physiology.
YMMV, IMHO, JTCMA (Just To Cover My Ass)
My ratios ALSO change during the day. They are about the same as Donna's - I
have a much faster and more effective reaction to insulin later in the evening
than I do during the am and early afternoon. If I am high, it takes different
amounts of insulin at different times of the day to bring me down. If I eat
a bagel for breakfast, I need a different amount of insulin than if I eat it
PERSONALLY, I wouldn't change a thing, if her A1cs are so good and she feels
good enough to work out 4 times a week and feels up to having a baby - GO
