    I am up tonight doing a second round of basal testing. I am so tired and I have to work tomorrow. But, I need to get a good look at his patterns so I know what changes to make. He seems to be following the same pattern he did Friday night.

    Friday night his numbers were:
    8:45pm 121
    9:45pm 75 (did not treat, decided to wait it out a bit)
    10:20pm 104
    11:20pm 122
    12:20am 180
    2:20am 191
    3:30am 180
    4:40am 149
    6:00am 119
    8:00am 86 (no carb breakfast)
    9:00am 181
    10:00am 225 (I corrected at this point and stopped the test)

    Tonight so far:
    8:30pm 124
    9:30pm 117
    10:30pm 130
    11:30pm 166
    12:30am 180
    1:30am 229 (I am going to let it ride for one more hour but I may have to stop the test and correct at the next check.)
    2:30am 253 (I corrected at this point and decided to get a couple hours sleep.)

    This seems like too much variation overnight to me. His current basals are:
    5-8pm 0.6
    8-10pm 0.7
    10pm-12am 0.9
    12-1am 0.85
    1-3am 0.8
    3am-5pm 0.5

    These basals had been working great until recently but they have not been changed in about 3 months so I know it's time to do some adjusting.
