[IP] Dawn Basals

I am curious to what some of you change your basil rate to (timing
> and amounts) to account for Dawn Phenomenon (is it 50% increase or
> 100% increase or less and for how long?).

My dawn phenomenen is very strong - my basals run
12:00 AM - .9,
3:00 AM - 1;
4:00 AM - 1.2;
5:00 AM - 1.3;
6:00 AM - 9:30 AM - 1.5,
then back to 1/hr for rest of day.
This works very well for me.

If I happen to skip dinner (a rarity for me) I will have a low about 4 am 
and have to suspend and eat a couple of tabs til time to get up at 6:00 AM. 
Hope this helps.
