    Hi Pumpers
    Just curious to know what we all have our target BG set in our pump

    Mine is as follows
    12am - 3am 5.6 ( correct above 6.0 )
    3am - 8pm 5.5 ( correct above 5.6 )
    8pm - 12am 5.6 ( correct above 5.9 )

    :)

    Mine's a range, @himtoo , and I've got it set the same across all my time blocks.

    It's 5mmol/l to 7mmol/l (corrects to 6).

    :)

    Mine are:

    0.00-18.00 - 5.5-6
    18.00-24.00 - 6-6.5

    Hasn’t changed since it was set up with the DSN but going to change it now as I tend to run higher at night :)

    I'm insulin sensitive and would love my target to be lower, but mine is 6 - 8, with 8 at bedtime.

    Mine is 5.5 +/-0.5 at all time ... at the moment
    I did turn it down to 5.0+/-0.5 but hypoed too often
    I have also tried 6.0 +/-0.5 at night but realised my night time hypos were exercise related so turned down my temp basal on exercise days instead.

    Reading this, I will now reduce the range and see what happens.

    7 across all rates, I run six rates, but I'm massively insulin resistant so I tend not to phaff with it and run temp basals after my training.
