I am newly diagnosed and am on the Omnipod. I have a TDD of around 10, but I am trying to get my basals right. I started on the lowest setting, .05u/h, and I went to bed with a reading of 102. My CGM stayed consistent throughout the night, and my reading this morning upon awakening was 101. Needless to say I was stoked. So I wanted to go ahead and get my morning basal, so I skipped breakfast. I noticed on my CGM, within 30 minutes of waking at 6:15, my glucose level rose to 140. I checked it with a fingerstick, and it actually had it at 120. Throughout this entire morning it has been staying at 120.
I would love to be around 100 most of the time, but is that rise of 20 from night to morning enough to warrant a second basal in the morning of .1? I am afraid that I am so sensitive to insulin that would drop me low. I wanted to get a few opinions before I actually tried it.
I guess my ultimate question is, I know that it says within 30 up or down, but that 20 point climb really has made my breakfasts spike more-so than other meals. Am I being too picky about that rise for the morning, or can I actually affect it safely by increasing from .05 to .1?
