Re: [IPp] basals



Our CDE said that Kaycee should be at 150 before exercising. Then her
basalshould be set 50% less for 2vhours after exercising is done. Maybe your
son could just set a temporary basal for the time he is playing maybe at 25%
of regular basal? Then it wouldn't take so much time from his schedule.
