Re: [IP] basal adjustments

But, if you don't have a .05 basal rate on your pump, you can do an average; for example,  .8 .8 .9 .8 .8 to create a pattern.  The prior numbers obviously will average 8.2 over a period of 5 hours...or you could do  .8 .9 .8 which would average 8.3in three hours and so on.  

The other alternative is to use diluted insulin and then you can use 1.7 diluted which would be 8.5 undiluted.

IMHO...I am told that both these options work for children who need very small basal rates.
