Since I discovered that Minimed added Mac compatibility to the Carelink website, I've been pretty religious about downloading my pump/ sensor data and looking at it carefully. I don't really think I'm too great at analyzing data, but it's pretty interesting to see patterns, etc.
The first time I had my graphs and charts I adjusted my overnight to AM basal and it immediately flattened out my levels and improved my morning blood glucose. It was a small tweak, but it made a noticeable difference. I think getting the basal correct is one of those major things that has a positive rippple effect. In reality, I didn't really add basal insulin, I just moved it from the afternoons to the morning and I fixed both a high trend in the AM and a regular dip into the hypos in the early afternoon. My overall basal actually went from 24 to 22.
Right now my average BG for the past month has been 136-139. I'm hoping to see that reflected in an at home A1C test in mid-November.
I'm currently taking 29 units of Novolog a day, with 22 units being basal and 7 in corrections and boluses.
