Today, for the first time, we were able to largely suppress a hormone peak with a very high temp basal.
Over the past few weeks, we have seen many high evening hormone peaks, sometimes above 300, take several hours and more than 15 units to bring down. Some of them require triple or quadruple stacking.
Lately we have tried a new technique, which consists in combining very high basal from the moment we suspect a peak with high early boluses.
Today, for the first time, we were able to control the peak below or around 150 (after a brief incursion over 200) for several hours with a high +50% temp basal. The moment we suspected it (right as it crossed 120), we upped the basal and gave a large bolus (5U).
I am not sure if this is going to become SOP. Nonetheless, it is an interesting experiment for us.
The control was not clean or flat, btw, it was ugly, and sometimes low. But this time we were not stuck at 250+.
