Hi guys, fairly new to DAFNE and have made a few changes to my insulin, but am still not quite right. I recently reduced my lunch ratio from 1.5:1 to 1.25:1 as was having hypo sometime between afternoon and tea, but still feel my morning to lunch sugar is too high! I rarely have breakfast, so can only think of increasing my am BI to 16??? Any thoughts???

if your waking up high, then you should try increasing your bedtime 16..............

do some 3 am tests to confirm its working and to identify the dawn phenomenon if it exists..........Smile

if you can get your waking result down to a reasonable level, then you will be in a better position to make an AM BI dose change.........

if your carb free most mornings, that's an excellent opportunity to do hourly tests to see what your BI is doing over that time..........

Thanks buddy! Will try that.... Just feel bad increasing the evening BI more, like it's not working for me 😢 At this point I'll try anything!
