Re: [IP] Control IQ vs Basal IQ?



 The limits on control IQ are set at 70 and 170. I find these limits
unacceptable. Thus, I use the basal IQ to help prevent lows and manually bolus
for highs.

 My understanding is that once the Tandem is set for control IQ it can not be
reconfigured for basal IQ from a home download.
