    So we have a tslim and I have a question about the temp basal setting.

    Assume that I have basal settings like so

    At 1:00PM it is 1 unit per hour
    At 2:00 PM it is 2 units per hour

    if at 1:01PM I go into the menu and set a temp basal of 150% for 2 hours what will the rate be at 2:00PM?

    Will it be 1.5 or 3?

    The tslim manual says "A temp rate is used to increase or decrease (by percentage) the current basal rate for a period of time."

    Is the percentage applied across basal rate boundaries or does the rate you set stay constant for the period of time you indicate?

    3 units. The percentage is applied to each separate basal rate.

    Yes. The idea is that you can increase or decrease the rate but retain the contour of the profile.
