HOw much should I decrease my basal rate

I just started a new job cleaning houses.How much of a temp basal should I use.Thanks.

I guess it depends on what you are doing Dee. I do housecleaning - and have never had to decrease my basal rate - but that`s me. One of my clients insists on me having a snack (fresh fruit / nuts) - she worries about me going low. I guess for your first few days - bring extra snacks - and see how it goes - that’s the only suggestion I can give. If you have to lower basal rate afterwards, maybe just go in 10% increments.

Yes, like FatCat said…
but I would just treat it like going to do Exercising… This is what I do…
1- Test b4 Doing extended Physical work and make sure your 120-140 for starters ( you’rs may have to be Higher )
2- Test every 1/2 hr
3-have Glucose tabs handy… to keep your BG’s Up in the 120-140 range to avoid going hypo…
and to keep your Energy levels up…
