@anice Great suggestion, I’ll have to try that. I know there’s a lot of tinkering that can happen with peak times and insulin durations too, so I was curious if those had any utility being adjuster in situations like this.
I was having the EXACT same issue as you if you read back a ways in this thread. What solved it for me was adjusting my basil slightly lower than pre loop AND significantly increase ISF. Like I went from 1.7mmol per unit to 2.5mmol per unit.
It’s a very complicated and convoluted set of parameters that all need work together and is different for everyone. I found that in general the temp basils that I never used to have gave me a lot more insulin over all than pre loop. For me the basals were close but the ISF was the key to smooth it out.
You will likely need to cycle for a good day or so to see this affect but believe me there will be a setting that will work.
yea i think im having ISF issues as well
i use Autotune
but not so sure its working as I would expect
have others used Autotune and its results are matching what you need?
I have not done autotune yet but will soon. Trying to get some good history with my current settings
Sorry, noob question, what’s autotune and how would I go about availing myself of it?
autotune can review your history from NS
and provide recommendations on CR, ISF, and Basals
@tswire what were some major symptoms you noticed that caused you to change the ISF
i notice that when i eat a meal, say lunch, and bolus for it, and then i add an apple into the mix 20 min later, my BGs rocket
the eventual BG shows in range, but in the meantime im way above target. im sure i need to pre-bolus instead to help cut the spike, but i feel like something else is going on but cant nail it down
Symptoms for me was constant up and down. Like all the time. I was chasing insulin with food then bam back up and then bam bolus back down.
Pre bolus is different. I still have breakfast rise from 6 to 13 and back to 6 within 2 hours. Lunch pre looping I had huge increases to 15-18 then back down but usually over 4 hours. With looping I have eliminated the lunch spike (somehow because I am not pre bolusing) but need to work on breakfast. For me I think breakfast is high carb and sugar with little to no protein that is causing it (cereal and juice)
Bottom line if you are seeing swings constantly (like rarely a straight line) then I would try to increase your ISF.
ok, thanks, going to try that nbow
I did it from 1.7mmol to 2 then 2.5. I found 2.5 to be spot on with loop. That being said I think I have nailed down my basals pretty good through testing so that helps.
thought i would share. any feedback is certainly welcomed. i think my basals are fairly close, might need some slight tweaking.
Is there a list of the current features in Loop-Dev that are not in Loop-Master 1.9.3? Also, I would be interested in trying a version with fat and protein handling, if the build would not require knowledge of the cartfile changes or file locations.
@DaveD1958 no, for things that are committed into dev vs. master…look at the commit history. For things that people are proposing to dev, but aren’t yet in…look at the PRs. You can check with @rsilvers for what branch he has the FPU active and updated
@DaveD1958 my FPU-IRC is dev with FPU, IRC, and Spike. It doesn’t require knowledge of Cartfile as it already handles that on its own.
Nice write up @rsilvers129 I’ve got a ways to go to fully understand the added variables and their full weight. But this helps to understand the principle.
Hello, I'm going to have to find a replacement for my wife's 515 who has broken plastic and do not hold the reservoir anymore.
I'd like to know what is better in terms of Loop: a 522 with 2.4 firmware or a 523 with 2.3 firmware.
can't you Sugru it?
Hi everyone! I have been using Loop for a while now, but trying to re-set it up on my new Mac. On step 1 to install Homebrew I'm getting the following error pop up "Can't install the software because it is not currently available from the Software Update server."
Any ideas on how to fix this?
Are you using terminal app? Can you take screenshot?
Actually think it somehow still worked -- seeing it in my Xcode preferences. Here is the screenshot though of what I saw. Thank you for quick response!
@Kdisimone Thank you for helping me with identifying the version differences. @rsilvers129 you've given me far more information than I asked for, and it is all very useful. I have not been able to identify IRC as you use it in your Loop-Dev version.
@dabear I haven't tried. But this is a good idea. Do you know if someone tried it already?
@deedeemo_jr_twitter not for the reservoir, but I know many people have used sugru to fix the battery compartment
I was taking a look at sugru and indeed I think that it would be too soft to hold the reservoir.
In terms of comm reability with RileyLink, would 522 with 2.4 FW be better 522 with 2.3?
I cannot build Loop on the Dev side because my Team Provisioning Profile does not include the com.apple.developer.siri entitlement. Is there any easy way to correct that in the profile, or will I need to create a new profile? I am currently using a free profile.

I am thinking about customizing my version of loop to have an optional switch to allow myself to deliver a calculated superbolus with meals. Before I dig In i figured I’d check if anyone else has done such a thing?
(Note, I am talking about a sugar surfing style bolus to help with meals as opposed to openaps smb style microboluses/smb)
