    I can't make heads or tails of his numbers. I think he is due for a .25 increase but I'm not sure because his numbers are all over the place. Please check out his SS. I've been working a bit more so I haven't got as much data the past few days. Should I be adding more things i.e. Meals.
    Cat thirty (5:30 am & pm) is when our routine starts and is the same every day.
    Am I prepare a Sheba portion adding a Zobaline. Check BG and give him the food after. Then I prepare shot and breaskast for him and the other three cats. @ ~ 5:45 I give Diamond a can of FF and shot him while he is eating.
    Pm is basically the same without the Sheba and Zobaline.
    Snacks (usually a Sheba portion or 1/2 can of FF) vary but usually happen 2-3 times. 1-2 between am and pm and one after pm.

    Per TR, if your cat is new to nadirs under 200, you would hold the dose for 8-10 cycles, you have done 12, so you are good to go for an increase to 2.5. Diamond is a bouncy boy so far! Hopefully the increase will help him get more used to blues. :cool::cool::cool:

    @Stacy & Asia Thank-you for your advice. Perfect timing too! It's shot time. I'll go ahead and increase to 2.5.

    Just be prepared to monitor, he dropped from pink to blue last night and now you're giving more juice. Sometimes it takes a couple cycles to see what an increase does, but for my cat it's almost always shown right away. :rolleyes:

    Good luck! :cat:
