I try not to ask a question unless I answer it, myself, so I'm not just 'prying' into all your diabetes business.
I have been setting basal according to where I get flatline overnight numbers, knowing full well that I still need correction over the morning hours and expecting to get low in the eave. It feels like a happy medium. But, I recognize there might be better ways to interpret 'correct basal dose.' My Doc wants the basal decreased and, I think, is basing her judgment on: 1.) I have gained weight (which she attributes to over-insulin-izing, but I attribute it to not exercising this winter and eating a lot of 'medicinal' candy to treat the lows); and, 2.) Suspected incidence of low blood sugar (because my A1c was quite low and I do generally run pretty chaotic numbers. Although, I agree that there have been runs of lows, they are not profound lows. Lows are easier to manage than extreme highs. I have all but eliminated readings below 50 and above 300, except during exercise).
I think it will get much more complicated to manage several basal rates during the waking hours. So, so many variables at play then. I really hate diabetes today. If I could, I would punch diabetes in the face.
