My summer basal rate gave me 16.55 units of insulin per day. After my tweaks that number is at 17.325 units. My basal rate is currently at:
With my 4pm basal rate so high, it is very important that I set a temporary basal rate for my workouts in the afternoon. I'm sure that I will forget once or twice this week and wonder why I'm so low after a run. Today my new basal rate did very well, the best part of all of this is that I emailed my doctor and was told that the changes I made look good and to keep a closer eye on my blood sugars this week. It is so great to have a doctor that is available 24/7. These rates will change again in November as work really slows down. I also have an interesting new workout and sport planned for the winter which I can't wait to blog about tomorrow!!
