I'm starting my period today, which always means I tend to go low for a few days. So as soon as I noticed those effects start, I adjusted my basal down 10%. But I've noticed through the day that it seems to be my BOLUSES sending me low. My dinner bolus sent me low enough that I drank TWO juice boxes and then had ice cream with a much-reduced bolus... and I checked a few minutes ago with concern that I'd been impatient and over-treated, but I'm only at 92!
Do any of you find that hormonal changes also call for different I:C ratios?
(On a related note, I had this random thought: The lunch and dinner lows happened fairly quickly, so maybe my fresh infusion site has absolutely STELLAR absorption? I don't think that's what's causing this (it doesn't seem to be a carb/insulin timing issue), but could that happen? Stumbling upon a site with absorption so much quicker than usual that it's inadvisable to wait that recommended 15 to 20 (mine's usually more like 10) minutes before eating?)
