Hi Jackie,
I wanted to bring this info to Sissy's thread. To determine whether you have overlap of insulin you would need a few curves to compare. Often you'll see a drop at the end of 12 hours and no or very little rise after the next food/injection. The overlapping insulin can push numbers down further into the next 12 hour time frame. But your curves can help sort that out.

I would wait about 5 days to let the new dose settle in, as long as you don't have any more lows. Then do another curve to see how things are looking.
