RE [IP] testing basal rates

<<Any problem with a full day fast when testing basals?>> 

This might work for you, but time blocks within a day are better. Many 
individuals begin to release glucose from the liver with prolonged fasting 
(>8 hours) because their metabolism thinks they are starving. This liver 
release of glycogen stores can lead to false information in the basal test.
