I'll admit it, I don't remember quite everything I read from that website, but I remember finding one describing the "Basal Test" process. Granted, before I saw about a "Basal Test" I was just gonna start with slightly less than my lantus dose divided equally through the day and go from there and try to spot trends etc and adjust on-the-fly over the course of a few days/weeks. But then I saw about the Basal Test and was curious and was gonna go for it as it seemed at least a little more exact than what I was gonna do... While it says to "cancel" the test at any point you are over/under by 30 or so from your initial BG (which assumes the test would usually have to be done over a few days until you get the dosage right at the right time of day).... in a perfect world... if you happen to have the exact same basal requirements throughout the day (which is unlikely), does that mean that you might not eat for a whole day whilst running the test? Or is it intended to be done in separate segments anyway over a series of days (Overnight, morning, afternoon, evening)? While I do enjoy my food... I'm almost hopeful that the "final" (or first if you happen to be so lucky) test is an all day "starvation" thing just to get it overwith as quickly as possible... but is that indeed what is intended, or am I misunderstanding the process.
