Let me share my daily routine and daily basal/bolus rate. That might help understanding where the problem is.
Breakfast: Between 7:30- 8:30 AM ; Bolus: 1 unit for 7 grams of carbs
Lunch: Between 11:30AM-12:30PM; Bolus: 1 unit for 13 grams of carbs
Dinner: Between 6PM-7PM; Bolus: 1 unit for 8 grams of carbs
Basal Rate: 12 AM- 6AM: 0.65 unit/hr
6AM - 12AM : 0.95 unit/hr
Terry, I'm pretty much on the same page with you. I have endo appointments every three weeks for the past 7 months. I have give him my breakfast high clearly but he didn't agree to increase basal rate.
Other than that, I usually decrease temp basal during workout by 50% for 2 hours. I don't take snack afterwards and take herbal tea before go to bed around 11:30PM.
Now my food plan that I'm following for the past 7-9 months:
Breakfast: wholewheat bran cereal and granola cereal (80/20 ratio) (80 grams)
Lunch: Wholewheat chicken wrap/chicken/fish sandwich (70-90 grams)
Dinner: lentils/beans/chicken/fish with whole wheat flat bread or most of the time just mixed fruit/vegetable Salad (70-90 grams)
I usually don't take snacks during a day.
I'm frustrated and couldn't figure out where I'm making mistakes either on meal plan or basal/bolus rate..
Also Terry not sure about 5-8pm low's, as I take good portion of meal and feel stuff before going out for workout between 8:30-10:30PM.
