Re: [IP] basals



Congratulations on your success.  I too am just learning about pre-dawn
phenomena, and I'm struggling to adjust after having my oral medications
discontinued.

The worst part was having a 6.5 A1c in  the very beginning. I know that the
next is not going to be near as good.

<sigh>
