Hi all D friends, I was diagnosed a year ago (Type 1) and I got a lab here in Bogota to “use” me as a test patient for the Omnipod, I’m in multiple shots right now (usually with pretty good control) Lantus and Novorapid.
I see that my insulin requirements change through the day, in the morning I can eat 40 gms of carbs without needing insulin, in the afternoon I need about 1 unit per 25 grams and at night 1 unit per 17 grams.
I guess I have to set the rate at which insulin is inserted as it varies through the day (is this what they call basal rate ?) So my question is, how do I figure that out ? And my guess is that I should keep tweaking it right ?
Any Omnipoders want to share succesful methods for doing so ?
Much gratitude and love,
