sometimes i can go for months without having to change my pump’s basal rates. sometimes its so easy to make a simple change, say for just 2 hours in the middle of the afternoon, but other times it requires an entire overhaul.
i hate the process, personally, but it does give me a sense of the control i have in managing my D. i test every hour for a major overhaul and see how each change effects my BGs. sometimes i can have 10 different basal rates while at other times only 2. (say, for example, morning/all day and then one for overnight.) sometimes the changes are more dramatic than at other times. dont know why.
just wondering how often you change your basal rates either on the pump or MDI. (although i must admit i wouldnt have a clue how to do MDI changes). what is your process? do you go the “fasting” way skipping one meal at a time? or do you just watch how high you may be climbing at a certain time of day, or plummeting during others?
