      Hi! I read your post that says your daughter reads the parents forum now and then. I know she's not quite a teen yet, but we'd love to have her on the teens forum, if it would help her have an outlet for D.

      Wilf- I was just reading a post of yours and I get the impression you think basal should ALWAYS be at least 40% of the TDD. Did I misread your post? I would have crazy night time lows if I did that, and I pick my Lantus dose by what gets me the flattest overnight profile. Usually that drops me during the day too, and it's generally about 30% of my total dose. Right now I'm averaging just over 20 units of Novolog per day, and just under 10 units of Lantus. I'm having very few nighttime highs and quite a few nighttime lows (keep waking up in the 30s-60s). I imagine if I tried 15 Lantus I would bottom out.
      I believe that the best basal is the one whose imperfections you can correct, meaning that I want mine to work perfectly overnight and I don't care that much about what happens in the day. If you think some other basal philosophy works better, I'd like to know why.

      Hi Wilf,
      Sounds like we both have a bit in common ~ a preteen! Thanks for your input in the forums, it just makes sense when you do the math right. I ordered a book on using Insulin to better understand it.
      Blessings to you and your family!
