Re: [IP] basal rate range

By basal rates vary from 1.1 to .4.

Some of my basal rates changes are just a .1
change because a change of .1 change can
mean bgs in my 100-130 target instead of
a slow climb or 50-60 and eating carbs every
hour.  I see changes in basal rates having
a significantly larger affect on my bgs than
a similar change in a bolus would.

As always YMMV.
