    Thanks yeah I just searched found some good info. This link provided full guide https://mysugr.com/en/blog/basal-rate-testing

    Kinds like what I've been doing just without the icing.

    Last night it happened again. Days below shows the night. I went to bed around 10.00 blood was around 4.5. I was empty on full and bolus. So I ate exactly one small banana and 5xharibo(no bolous) to see what happens and if that could handle the basal attack and it didn't lol. As you can see from the data it provided a good curve for most of the night but then dropped around 3am onwards into a hypo. Getting the feeling basal should be 30units not 35

    @Alexsalter47 we cannot advise on what dosages are to be taken. Get in touch with your DSN and explain what has been happening and see what they suggest, you now have the tools to tell them what you are observing in the night times
