First: disclaimer – I’m also a pump user and my basals move about as much as @Tim’s. And I now see why I could never get ‘good’ control on MDI – there’s no way Lantus could match my rollercoaster needs.
What you describe does sound a bit like the dawn phenomenon I used to get – it only really happened if I didn’t get on with my day – so I guess the breakfast insulin/food hid it most days. I found that giving my Lantus in the morning helped – I only used it once per day (so as to reduce the night time hypo problem) but lots of people find that having it in two doses (morning/evening) works well for them so as to give differing amounts to cover night/day- something to ask your DSN about, I think.
