"I find ketones are more of an issue with my DP if I don't eat anything when I get up. I then feel ill for longer than I do if I don't eat at all and DP just ruins my whole day then. Even if I don't want to add more carbs to my system,…"

"The issue with dawn phen has to do with insulin levels during the night and as well how well the liver signals on the insulin. For many folks adjusting basil insulin is a excellent stratagy. for me, metformin worked better due to my liver signalling…"

"if one wakes up high and doesn't take insulin, of course they'll continue to be high. so, doesn't that mean your basal is not right then, that's what a correct basal rate is, allowing us to not eat (fast) and not go too high or…"

"Yeah, if I wake up high and don't eat I will be high all day long. That is why I do a bolus and then eat very low (or no) carb."

"I also have DP and I have found the best way (for me) to have better readings in the morning is to start my increased basal rate from 1:00am until 8:00am. I also my I:C ratio different for breakfast. That being said, I tend to eat low carb at…"

Hi Kent,
I see you might come to the Tucson type one Meetup I'm organizing! I'd love it if you'd come, as I'm really wanting to connect in person with some other people with diabetes here in Tucson. So far you're the only one who's responded... do you know others in our area who might be interested in connecting? and if you are, let me know if there's a better time/date to meet. Thanks!

Good to hear from you, Kent. The cones, yeah. It's a bit of a fetish and lately I've been flaunting them. I discovered over eleven years ago that I could use them to carve block prints. There's no way I could have afforded to buy linoleum blocks in an art store to make art. The result looks similar to a linoleum cut. I'm currently in a study for a long-acting insulin. So far the blood sugars have been fine. It looks like you're an active type 1. I know exercise has always been very important to me. Keep in touch.
