    Hi,

    At a rough guess?
    You may need to do a basal test regarding the dosage of your long acting..
    The 10ish in the morning may be a liver dump of glycogen (I get this before a day's graft. Normally after the mad rush getting my act together. I don't do breakfast.) which your case, Treshiba could be working on during the working day activities.?

    Just speculating, I'm not sure of your trade.

    Similiar ish pattern when i don't eat much (heat or not bothered) I seem to need to reduce basal as well as bolus. If your body weight has dropped this would also mean less insulin is needed. Start with the basal anyway.

    Oddly, I was doing some temp work for a fake grass laying company last week in that blistering heat on the south west coast.?
    Didn't eat all day. Bloods steady on my CGM set up, but was dropping by the afternoon 4pm.
    That was still after pre-emting lowering my basal. My girly dancer's frame was commented on as looking wiry by the end of the week. The wife thought I'd been working out. (Probably the sun toning me up too.)
    For me, heat increases insulin sensitivity.

    Indeed as do extra muscles. That's why leg waxing strips carry warnings for diabetics!!
