Mine are pretty simple: 12am-4am 1u/h; 4-6am 1.2u/h; 6am-12am 0.95u/h. I use temp basals (or glucose tabs) to cover any fluctuations due to 'abnormal' activity.
My settings used to be more complex, but I found that I was typically using the basal to cover elevations from meal-time protein (especially overnight) or decreases at times of the day that I'm more likely to be active. I've found that handling those with temp basals and the appropriate bolusing has dramatically simplified what used to seem so complicated. But whatever works...
12am-3am=0.3u/hr, 3am-7am=0.35u/hr, 7am-4pm-0.25u/hr, 4pm-12am=0.35u/hr. Depending on activity, I sometimes increase to 120% from 12pm-8pm. In past summers my basal has decreased, but this seems to work okay in the winter.
My basal rates are changing almost every week now because I'm pregnant, but I have different rates for the following time periods:
