<< Help, i can't seem to get a comfortable basal rate.  I have the regular 3AM
 to 7AM dose increase, and then 0.5 the rest of the day. The 0.4u/hour keeps
 my BSs at 160-230.  While at 0.5u.hr, i have many crashes of low blood
 sugar, 40s and 50s. My doctor doesn't know.  Any suggestions??

Try alternating basal rates: .4 one hour, .5 the next, .4 the next, etc. Or 
every half hour if your pump allows that.
