Re: [IPk] Re: Carbohydrate Counting



Two thoughts in light of the fact Danielle is going hypo a few hours after 
lunch: a) does she have a sport or other physical activity just before? b) 
perhaps, like Pat, she just needs a quite lower basal rate in the afternoon.

As Humalog is so fast-acting and doesn't stick around in one's system v. 
long after peaking, I would put more money on reducing Danielle's post-lunch 
basal than on reducing her lunchtime bolus, though lowering both by a little 
bit may be the hot trick.
