I'm new to pumping, having used shots for the past 11 years, and my doctor recommended the omnipod. So, basal is a new beast for me to figure out. My trainer said she wanted to start conservatively and programmed 1 unit/hour for the whole 24 hour cycle. I was using 60 units of Levemir (30 morning/30 night) for background. I feel like I'm constantly fighting highs, which she said could happen, but I've really felt awful the whole 6 day I have been pumping. I'm trying to log everything and figure out what needs to change and for what time periods, and was wondering if y'all could tell me your experiences.
I've been reading lots of discussions and learned so much in a short week!
If this issue has been tossed around before, please just point me to the link.
