    After what appears to have been a hypoglycemic situation is it normal to go back to the regular dosage?

    If she had a hypo, the insulin dose may be too high. Are you still using the Humulin/Novolin?

    Not for a while.. Because a hypo means dose was too high to start with. And if you use the same dose another hypo will likely occur..

    Plus there may be sensitivity. What's the current dose? Are you home testing?

    You need to reduce the dose if it was really a hypo.

    Did you change anything recently? Food? She could be going into remission. Give her half the dose of normal and get a test in a few hours. Better too high for a while than a hypo again next time she might not survive it.

    Hi Maaryon,

    Just wondering how Topaz is doing.
    Any further hypo signs?
    Did you try reducing the dose?

    Please do post if you have any questions or concerns.
