[IP] Re: insulin-pumpers-digest V4 #199

I have been on the miniMed508 pump since November and had a great first few 
months. Over the last  few months I have been waking up at 2-3 am to test my 
sugar and it's been close to 300. I take a bolus then but when I get up at 7, 
my sugar  is still in the high 200s. A couple days ago at my first visit with 
a new endo, I  was told to raise my basal rates between 3-8 am and this would 
help fix the dawn phenomenon I  seem to be experiencing. It seems to me 3am 
is too late to be increasing my humalog dose because by then my sugar is 
already very high, but the endo did not seem to agree with my blood sugar 
records. Has anyone had experience adjusting for the dawn phenomenon? I am a 
27 year old female who is become somewhat frustrated with out of contol 
sugars. Thanks for any help you may offer.  Barbara
