Re: [IPk] Re: ip-uk-digest V2 #530

It may also be the dawn syndrome. I typically have a basal of 0.9 or 0.1 
most of the day and night (though it can go down to about 1.7) but what 
never changes is that I have a basal of 1.3 from 8am to 10.30am, 
regardless of the other doses. Weird, but it works for me. Whether I eat 
or not.
