Re: [IP] After Breakfast Highs



Hi Rae - thanks for the post. Actually my problem appears solved
not changing the basal rate, but the carbo ratio. I really believe that
the basal rates should be used to keep the bg stable after the
correction by the boluses, so the "neck" is gather information about
HOW each human being answers. I am doing well with the following
basal rates and carbohydrates ratios:

#1 -> 12:00PM-03:00AM: 0.7 u/h
#2 -> 03:00AM-06:00AM: 0.6 u/h
#3 -> 06:00AM-12:00AM: 0.7 u/h
#4 -> 12:00AM-06:00PM: 0.6 u/h
#5 -> 06:00PM-10:00PM: 0.5 u/h
#6 -> 10:00PM-12:00PM: 0.7 u/h

BREAKFAST CARBO RATIO -> 1:7.5
LUNCH CARBO RATIO ----------> 1:10
DINNER CARBO RATIO ---------> 1:12

Bloog Sugar Measuraments:

10/24/99 -> 117 / 164 / 125 / 146 / 116 / 178 / 136
10/25/99 -> 094 / 105 / 131 / 080 / 158 / 175 / 150
10/26/99 -> 146 / 123 / 086 / 074 / 064 / 266 / 120 / 125 / 156
10/27/99 -> 160 / 149 / 078 / 067 / 126 / 112 / 135
10/28/99 -> 146 / 102 / 099...

My target is right now 140 mg/dL, so I am going to be on track.

I was very glad with the yesterday's dinner's measurement (135) after
we (me and my wife, Gina) have eaten pasta :-)

My endo here in Orlando (Dr.Victor Roberts) told me that is important
keep the patterns for while in order to let the body "understands" the
new pattern - so I am keeping the data and the records and adjusting
them with doctor's permission.

LET'S PUMP!!!

Hi All, a while back I asked for suggestions to
correct after bkfast highs that Ryan was having. We
would bolus correct amount 3-4 hours after he was on
target, but spiked high for a couple hours in between.
I tried lots of your suggestions (thanks), I think we
finally found an answer. 

Last night, we increased the basal rate 3 hrs before
he gets up. (was .9 5-8am, incr to 1.0 5-8am) it
worked. Still had a small "spike" but not enough to
make him "sick". Increasing the carb ratio caused a
low after 2 hr. weird. In the AM, he's quite insulin
resistant and a BG of 250 will make him feel sick, but
later in the day, he can get up to 300 and doesn't
notice. Jose was having the same problem, have you
tried increasing basal pre-bkfast Jose? as always
YMMV. Thanks for everyone's help. I just love the
digest! -Rae
