Zoe replied to Daisy Mae's discussion 'PUMPERS: how often do you have to adjust your basal rates'
"If I am having continuous numbers in the 200 range not accounted for by meals I will definitely tweak my basal. I'd say my average is about 4 tweaks per month.I can't imagine staying between 100 and 125 for a month!"

Daisy Mae,
I need your help...

Please share this post here on TuDiabetes and on your Facebook and tag 20 close friends on it. We need your support to reach 20,000 entries for the Big Blue Test!

Truth is people don't need to have diabetes to help people with diabetes! November is Diabetes Month.

Please do Big Blue Test every day until November 14 (World Diabetes Day). For each entry, the Diabetes Hands Foundation (that's the nonprofit behind TuDiabetes) receives a $5 donation from Roche Diabetes Care, to help people with diabetes in need.

You can enter your exercise numbers on the web site (www.BigBlueTest.org) or using the iPhone app: https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/big-blue-test/id570887902?mt=8&uo=4

We are praying for everyone, the storm was very bad. I pray that
people will show compassion and share when so many are hurting.

It's times like this when the human race shows it's better side.
