I will reiterate, if your basals are set correctly, you should not be 
running low without food. That is the purpose of the basal part of pumping 
and they give of 48 different variables (each half hour). The bolus part is 
to cover the carbs. It will not be perfect, but more like the pancreas 
handles our BGs.
