"My max basal is all the way up at 15. I never go above 3 (my normal highest is something like 1.3) but it gives me the whole spectrum to adjust. I don't want my pump programming dictating what I can and can not set my insulin levels to. I…"

Temp Basal issue

Hi all I am getting a "requested temp basal is outside the pod's delivery range" message, I am running a bit high and wanted to change it 5% but it is not allowing me, never had this issue before.
