Re: [IPk] Re: morning basals and highs

I am on ultratard, and I know this doesn't agree with a lot of people.  I 
discussed changing to another long acting with the dr the other day, but he 
said that given my control is pretty good he didn't want to change anything.

Doesn't help me much getting out of bed though!
