Options! I Need Options!
I’m at the gym tonight, plugging along on the elliptical machine, and I wonder, “I wonder how many people have different basal rate profiles?” (Hey, I never said my thoughts had any kind of logical order to them).
I know one of the most common arguments for certain pumps is the fact that there are multiple basal profiles – a profile for work, a profile for the weekend, a profile for That Time of the Month, a profile for different physical activity days (basketball in the morning, versus the gym at night).
And I thought to myself, I only have one!
Does this make me lame?
Do you have different basal rate profiles? What do you use them for? How did you figure out you even needed a different basal rate profile? Most of the time I just use a temp basal rate and then I go back to normal once I’m done. My blood sugars are all over the place that I haven’t been able to figure out if there are different trends for different days of the weeks.
