    Another flat yellow day for Ti-Mousse!

    Seeing his numbers, I was wondering about increasing again but if I do, it's gonna be his 4th increase in 7 days (from 5u to 6.5u) ! I think it's too much of an increase in a short period of time; so finally I'll leave him on that dose and wait for vet appointment on Tuesday! Hope I'm doing right!

    Weather is beautiful this morning! Have a nice Sunday!

    You don't want to rush increases or you could end up with an overfull depot. I hope he comes down for you today.

    Maybe after Ti-Mousse's visit with the vet he will feel better and THEN he will be surfing at the beach. Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

    I hope Ti feels better today. Also, I hope you get an earlier vet appointment, it's hard to have to wait when you think something's off. :bighug:
    Hope you have a good day! :)

    A cat needs however much insulin they need. As far as timing of increases, as long as you wait the time that TR says, and test so you aren’t missing anything, then you aren’t rushing the increases. That is not an overfull depot situation. With mid blues, you can wait 8 cycles before any increase. Maybe he’ll surprise you tonight. Depot should now be full.

    My concern was that if he doesn't respond because of an infection problem and I keep increasing as per TR, could he be getting too much insulin for his needs because of the infection to fight? and as soon as it will start being controlled, he could go to very low numbers?
    Once he had "LO" reading, no numbers at all... :eek: it took all night and the following morning to finally get him up and even the next day, he was still back in lime!! So I'm trying not to live this again....

    When do we get an overfull depot? I searched but could not get any clear details; I guess it's because too big increases close together?

    Sorry for the questions, I'm learning with you !! :)
    Hope you enjoy the nice summer weather!

    If he has an infection, the vet should find it and put him on antibiotics. When the infection starts to clear, he will earn reductions and you lower the dose. If you let him sit in high numbers hoping he will come down, you risk glucose toxicity.

    An overfull depot comes if he earns a reduction, but you don’t take the reduction.
