    Yesterday: http://www.felinediabetes.com/FDMB/...-283-7-96-pmps-136-2-134.220302/#post-2458424

    So LT's numbers have inched up again. I don't know if it's a residual from the kibble 2 days ago or if he's doing the LT upward crawl as in the past. If he is in the 150 range tonight, should we go back to the drop+? I almost did the dosecrease this a.m., but I might be gone a few hours today and don't want to leave hi by himself.

    I got up this a.m. and it was 5 F outside. It's supposed to make it into the low 50s today which will certainly feel warm to us. Sometimes after a cold snap we'll have a nice period before winter settles in for good.

    Have a good day everyone.

    Since you’re not testing as often as I would, especially in light of the 96 you saw yesterday, I’d wait... I have to wonder what his numbers were during those hours when you didn’t test... as soon as you can get more tests in, like doing a curve you’ll have a better handle on how low this dose is taking him... it’s hard to tell without testing... and he’s pretty low already...

    Good morning. One eye is open. Torn between bed and cuppa. Three brain cells. I'll leave it to others to respond about dose.
    Today is our last warm day. Supposed to go up to 57F.
    Okay. Bed is winning.

    If it were my cat, I'd increase the dose. Most of the numbers you'be been seeing have been in the mid -to-upper green vicinity.or blues. Even with a pet specific meter, I suspect you'd like to see more of those greens. I'd also encourage you to get some tests past PM +2. I suspect that LT has an early nadir but those nadirs can change and I'd not want to think you're missing dose reductions due to not getting more tests in during the PM cycle.

    So all I have to do is mention a dose change and he decided to throw me a lower number:eek::D at +2. I'll keep an eye on him and try to re-arrange an errand I have to run today - it's with someone else so I don't have a lot of wriggle room on the time. I also have something in the a.m. the next 2 mornings, so I'll plan a full curve on Monday.

    Next check at +2.5 to see if he's slowed down.

    With you all the way, Suzanne ❤️ I have to go with a NS this Saturday PM because of a wedding .....and then another early evening event the following Saturday which will again require a NS. :banghead: No, I don’t like it but we do have lives to live outside of FD....just my opinion :bighug:

    Sometimes it's hard to remember that there is life outside of FD and CD. I've been looking forward to this little jaunt today and will probably only be gone no more than 2 hours. I have some MC in the pantry and will use it if I need to.

    Exactly my thought...what life outside of FD? My whole world has changed to a 12 hour schedule for the injections and I rarely ever leave the house for more than 2-3 hours; only for medical reasons...and when I do the auto-feeder is what I depend on. I'd never skip a shot...because that would send Luci to the moon...and I really don't like it when she's on the moon...it's a very unhealthy time for her...and I figure we're in this for life anyway...hers.

    Nice that you saw some green today. I hope the curve on Monday gives you good data.

    Not sure if this would work for both of you for when you have to do a NS, but Marje was talking to Jan about an 18 hour cycle. Have a peek at Jan's last thread and tag Marje if you think it could work. :bighug:

    Shooting on an 18 hr cycle is one option. Depending on when shot time is, it could put the next shot at a very inconvenient time, though. There's really not much of a difference from skipping a shot.

    What is going on with the up and down BGs today? Does laying in the sun affect a kitty's BGs? I'm baffledo_O.

    OMG! Did you say FIVE degrees! YUK!! Double YUK!!

    I've never heard of kitty laying in the sun causing an issue with bg...I think you're just seeing a little up/down - I've read (somewhere) that at any given time since the glucose in the blood isn't bound in the blood, it can be different from place to place...time to time...Now if I could only find that article...

    Possible that the minion found 1 kibble midday or you could be seeing a Lantus double dip. That's where there is a little dip towards the end of the cycle but not as big a dip as the nadir – just to mess with us.

    We got another green. They don't come very often, so we'll treasure it until we see another one. I'm going to do a +3 and see if it goes the same way as the a.m.
