RE: [IPk] Re Pump



Hi Di

Sorry - I worded that one badly. I increased one hour's basal by 0.1 unit -
that was the only increase, from 5.8 total basal to 5.9 total basal. My pump
will not do less than 0.1 at a time.

Carol.

Hi Carol
It might be worth making the changes 0.5 units/hour at a time.
I'm amazed the difference it can make sometimes, and I take around 30 
units a day!
