Wondering if an increased basal will help tame a post meal spike? DD's BG after Bfast went up to 15.9 (286 mg) checked at 1 hour 15 mins post meal, not 2 hours because she thought it was a low feeling. Without a correction, she dropped low before lunch to 3.3 (59 mg)(about 3 1/2 - 4 hours after Bfast). We have increased her I:C ratio but know that this doesn't help with the 286 mg spike. So, is it advisable to "increase" the basal. Would this help with lowering the after meal spike and prevent the low at 4 hours? So a "high" after meal, but "low" 4 hours post, change I:C from 1:13 to 1:15 and also would increasing basal help here?
