I only read the last few posts but have you considered CGM? (If you already addressed this I apologize). We got ours while still MDI and it definitely restored a good deal of sanity to our household. Yes, it's a great tool for setting variable basals on a pump, but it's also great just to see real-time how your choices affect BG. And I know some warn against relying on it at night, but we use it to alarm us of impending lows so we can get some sleep.
