constant need to change basal rates?

Recommended Posts


Not sure if this is the right spot but I've recently started the ideal protein diet.  My question is I'm struggling to determine how/ how much to decrease my basal rates.  I haven't needed to bolus for meals in about two weeks.  However, I'm dropping like a lead balloon in the evening/night,  then suspending my pump for a couple hours then high etc.  I need to level out and I'm not to my endo til next week.  Pre diet I was up to 1.75 units an hour.  Now I'm trialing 1.25 for the day, dropping in the evening to 1.1, then at midnight to 1 unit/hr.  I realize this is quite personalized but wondering if anyone has any input.  Thanks in advance.
