"I agree as well, but at night, all that is occurring is basal rates, no bolus, therefore isf and bolus changes won't help... But basal changes will impact your bolus rates as well... They all go together but under true fasting through the…"

"I definitely swear by basal testing! (or basal assessments). You really can't figure out the root of the problem until you eliminate extenuating factors. My CDE told me I really shouldn't make big changes to my basals without doing an…"

High to low at night

My daughter has a problem with going high in the night but low in the morning. For example she was 181 before bed last night so we gave her a half snack of 8 carbs with protein with an extended bolus and she was 178 at 2:00am and 90 at 4:30am. So we had to give a snack to get her thru the night. Another example would be 103 at bedtime and with a snack of crackers with pb she went to 295 @1:52am and 78 in the morning...does anyone have a suggestion how to get thru the night without the highs and…See More

"Have you tried EMLA cream? It's a prescription numbing cream that you rub in an hour before pod change. We used it for a couple of months, but now the insertion (without the cream) doesn't phase my daughter anymore."
