If you're talking about temporary basal rates, I don't understand you,
elizabeth. If your basal rate goes up and down at different points in the
day, and your insulin sensitivity has temporarily changed (you've got a
cold, you're sitting in a meeting all day, you're shopping all day etc)
then most likely all your basal rates will have changed by a similar
proportion. So it's much simpler to have a global basal-rates-up-by-10%
command (or down by 15% or whatever), rather than having to fiddle with yet
another temporary basal rate every few hours.

Or have I misunderstood you?
