A couple of the recent threads here has got me wondering how much you flucuate when you don’t have fast acting still active. I guess the question arose from the “too low to drive” thread. For me when I have lunch, at noon, and check to see where I landed at 3pm, I don’t get much movement until I do something that would cause it to move - eat/drink carbs, excercise, dawn phenom, etc. I am wondering what others experiences are? I guess I always thought that if your basal was correct, then you would tend to float along in the same area, say plus or minus 15 points, unless you’re sick or whatever. That said, I rarely check before I drive, excercise or even eat my next meal, because my basal keeps me realtively level. I know this mainly becasue I did a ton of testing when I first started, and period days of additional tests, I don’t normally do. Now I test maybe 6-8 times per day.
Let me just say that I was LADA, so maybe thats helping me? Not sure.
