Re: [IPk] happy xmas & new year

Hi Mir

Do you mind me asking if you always suspend for lows? We were told not to
suspend as the insulin on board would still be effective therefore fast carb
was first choice (unless you don't have any fast carbs like Michelle!). We
do temp basals for 1 hour if Eleanor is hypo (or even just the low side of
where we want her to be) during the night as her night time basals are
highest (0.4-0.5 units cf  0.1-0.2 in the day) but still give carbs.
Let me know your thoughts
Glad christmas went well
