    (then a 2.3 at 2am)
    and finally 5.8 in the morning (guess I corrected just a tad bit by over eating in the night!)

    A man I used to work with noticed that when his type 1 wife had good blood sugars so did I. Also when she was bad so was I. He was strongly convinced it was more than just co-incident.
    just looking at most of the above MOST seem quite good and so is mine.
    Wonder if he was right in his reasoning. Sadly he has passed away now.

    I drop off a cliff at 4:30 - I think I have the opposite of DP! My body would like a lie in & is totally willing to knock me out to achieve this. I already had lower basal rate from 3, but have turned it down again this morning. Maybe I should start it earlier, but then I'll be worrying about a creep up, which will make me bolus before bed.

    Based on what I've seen from OpenAPS, I think you could get away with a half hour at 0 just to give yourself a little punch up. It seems to work quite well.

    So 12.2 last night, 4u correction which did nothing (actually it probably did :angelic: I may have eaten a biscuit before going to bed) 11.6 this morning, ~50g carbs for breakfast so 7u plus 4u correction, 5.8 before lunch :)

    Going to bed 4.3 (+4g) waking 4.1.

    Basal 4-4:30 dropped to 0.05 - don't think you can zero it on omnipod.
