    What a nice run for Bailey yesterday! Now here's hoping she can get off the beach and to the lagoon today!

    We are trying to not give her a whole bunch of Friskies because last time we did that in response to low BG, she jumped dramatically and derailed her progress. Mainly concerned because of where we are in the cycle at only +3.5. Trying to gently guide her through the cycle, but obviously don't want her to hypo.



    Any guidance is appreciated.

    It can take up to 30 minutes for the carbs to go from the plate to the blood stream. As long as she is above the 68 on the pet meter, I would slow testing to every half hour. If she trends up or is flat for a couple tests, you can go to hourly tests. And I would just feed low carb at this point. If you are feeding high carb, you have to wait a couple hours for the carbs to wear off, to make sure she doesn't drop again. If she starts going up on low carb only, then she's rising naturally and it's safe to go to bed.

    Thanks Wendy. The numbers are for human meter. I will be sure to make that clearer in my SS.
    We've given her quite a bit of gravy so I'm guessing I'll have to keep checking for a while.

    Yes, I did get confused on what meter you are currently using. Maybe update the signature to show what you are currently using too. Upper 60's on the human meter is not so worrying. The tests for the last hour and a half are all within meter variance. She's got a lovely surf going. :D

    We switched around trying to find a way to use the human meter because we were working closely with the vet, and that was her preference.
    We think we are doing well with the support we are getting here so now we can just stick to the human meter.

    We were trying to keep Bailey's BG from plummeting so we gave her HC gravy on top of her LC food, plus one bit of HC food when we panicked. If I understand what you are saying, we see the effects of the gravy by testing 30 minutes after feeding. In addition, for the next few hours, we will still be seeing the effects of the HC gravy.

    Thanks for your help!
