I have had D for 45 years and I too have a pump now. I too ought to be able to switch meal times, but maybe, and this is just a question, it is harder for us who have had D longer, not only b/c of our learned routines but b/c our bodies are really perhaps less flewible since more damage has occurred in them. It is just a question. You too have noticed that you tend to go low if you wait too long for a meal. The same happens to me.

A very good point!

These things that we were forced to rigidly incorporate into our lifestyles so long ago - how can we possibly just be able to "let them go"?

On the other end of the spectrum, I think I may take the flexibility too far! Maybe it's a form of rebelling against the system that kept me so restricted growing up?

Interesting things to think about, that's for sure.

There are times of the day that if I don’t eat I will tend to go low at least half of the time. The problem for me with late afternoons is that I am so sensitive to insulin this time of the day, that even though my basals are set ridiculous low from 2pm to 5pm, the slightest amount of activity that is higher than normal with cause a low. The funny thing about this, is I don’t remember my body being like this at this time of day before running. I used to run from 3pm – 5pm for about a year. About 4 months into the running I noticed the downward trend of the sugars everyday at this time. Now that I run in the mornings, I still have that downward trend in the afternoons, but I’m also getting a downward trend in the mornings too! I have no words to explain it, just weird!

I think these people are extremely fortunate to have you as a friend.

I agree with Minnesota Nice. :)
