just curious and seeking some helpful hints and answers:
for what reason do you use your pump’s temp basal feature? i know so many people on this site talk about changing their own basal rates throughout the month/ week (or whenever) w/ out speaking w/ their endo, but i am not adept at that. no matter how much research i do i seem incapable of making accurate changes on my own. i may tweak here and there, but nothing near worth writing home about.
originally, i learned about using my temp rate for exercise, then i learned to use it for illness, like the flu, for example, and now i have found that i am using it for those odd ball days/weeks when i just need to bump up my insulin rate w/out going into my “profile” and making any major changes on my own.
do any of you out there do this? and if so, do you find it useful/helpful? my endo says that anything i choose to do when i need more insulin, is to give myself more insulin. makes sense to me, but i wonder
