Basal testing questions
I'm pretty sure that we need to change Alison's lunch and supper I:C ratios but figured we should try basal testing first since the only basal testing we did was an overnight a couple of months ago.
I took advantage of the snowy day on Friday to do it. But I did do a small correction at breakfast; so I don't know if that would have affected the outcome. This is what we got:
8:55 188 (breakfast; covered; 1.06 unit correction)
1:40 hungry; had one string cheese
Was that long enough to make judgments about basal? If so, it looks like her basal is slightly too high. I stopped at the 95 because Alison tends to drop faster once she gets into the 90s.
We're doing afternoon into evening today and so far this is what we have:
12:55 158 lunch
Lunch I:C ratio is 1:18. I think she needs about 1:15 or 1:14. Supper is 1:20; I think she needs 1:16. She's not going sky high but I'm doing too many corrections. Her target is set at 135 (I'd like it a little lower) and the only time she's in range (+/- 10) is before breakfast.
What do you experts think? Thank you!
