I’m in the process of establishing all of my pump settings (starting with basal rates, then ISF, then I:CR).
I basal tested my overnight basals last night; to give you all the info, I finished exercising (ran 1.25 mi) at 6:35 pm, ate a burger (5 oz, no bun) and 1 cup corn at 6:55, dual waved bolus at 6:45 and the second half at 7:15, went low at 7:45 so I treated with glucose tabs (which account for that rise at 8). I know this isn’t a perfect basal test and am planning on retesting tonight. Here are the results from last night (3 images showing three BG values at 10PM, 3AM, 2AM):
I confirmed the g6 sensors reading with finger checks and my guardian sensor read similar trends.
I know I need to repeat the test but I’m comfortable making changes to the rates and then seeing how that looks tonight. So - I was wondering if I could have help interpreting the test and understanding which rates to adjust. I’m on FIASP which takes 5-15 minutes to kick in for me and I have an AIT of 2hr15-2hr30min.
- So using those times, do I adjust the basals that are 15 min ahead of the trends? An hour ahead of the trends?
- How much do I adjust by? My CDE and endo seem to like increments of .1; is this based off of my ISF (which I don’t believe to be accurate (am planning on testing it once I don’t have basals as a confounding variable))?
Overnight basals are currently:
I’m thinking the 10p-12a needs to be decreased, and the 12a-2a maybe change to 12a-1:30 and decrease then 1:30-3am increase?
I am planning on reaching out to my CDE and endo additionally but appreciate your help and explanations ahead of time!!!
