    Sometimes they have to go back and forth between doses before they will hold a reduction. You still may see some green when you get home today. :bighug:

    I was going to increase tonight if I didn’t as it’s now cycle 6 since the reduction. Should I hold do you think?

    Are you able to get a curve on the weekend? If you can, if it were me, I might hold the dose to see how low he is getting. The in-between, back and forth on doses is frustrating. Gizmo seems to be one that is the master of it :cool:. You just keep going up/down with the doses and eventually it will stick.

    I agree with Lizzie. If you are able to do a curve tomorrow, it might be a good idea to hold the dose and see what numbers you get. If you don't see green, I'd increase after the curve.

    Do you mean eventually the reduction will stick? I really want him down the dosing ladder. I am away for three weeks in September and I’ll go away much easier if he’s on a much lower dose. Pet sitter not confident with testing. I am going to try and show her again but last Nov I had to halve the dose and let her shoot blind. That was okay for five days but not three weeks.

    Yes I usually try and get a curve at the weekend. I was wondering tho - if I increased tonight I’d see the response tomorrow or is that too soon to tell? He was quite high last night but I don’t know if that’s bouncing, failed reduction or usual food hike.

    If you increase tonight, you may not see the response right away. A curve tomorrow without an increase will let you know for sure if he's bouncing or he needs to go back up in dose. I don't usually see a response right away when I increase Furball's dose.

    Ok. Will do curve tomorrow. I struggle to get the +2 on the am cycle tho as I get up as usual to shoot at 5:45am but then I use my one day in the week to go back to bed for a few hrs. I can do +4 to pmps then + 2 and bedtime test on pm cycle.

    Just do the best you can. I deleted the multiple posts. Sorry about that. The board was being very slow and not posting.

    I had the same problem. Seems to be okay now.

    That is always the hope. If you look at Gimzo's SS you will see that I have been up, down and all around 1.0U for over a year. You just have to follow their lead - as frustrating as that is.

    Yep, just do your best. Even a +3, +5... etc. I don't see immediate response either (usually), in fact, I often get NDW (new dose wonky numbers that are higher until the new depot has settled :mad::D)

    And a yellow PMPS. Dunno what he might be bouncing off unless he’s decided to switch things up and actually go lower and nadir at +6
