    Bella was AMPS 336
    Spent the day yesterday in yellows.. popped back up to pink.
    Her dose was increased to .05 Lantus yesterday am
    Spent most of the day worrying she was going to bottom out.
    I’m still trying to make sense of her spread sheet.
    Urine ketones remain negative. (yeah!)

    I’m wondering if I should go back to feeding her low carb food? She was increased to 5-6% carbs from 1-4% as a buffer and because of intermittent ketones.

    You are feeding her low carb food. I strongly recommended you continue with the 5-6% food for now; it is key to getting enough insulin into Bella. You don’t want to invite ketones back in.

    Day 8! Go Bella!

    Why does it seem as though Bella’s blood glucose levels are worse on insulin? Is this my imagination?
    She seems better, ketones are negative...am I too concerned about her “numbers”?
    I know patience is key....
