    What do you do when you just gave a reduction and then green appears again? I just reduced this morning from summer going low last night and she is dropping again already. Do you do back to back reductions or hold the dose even though they are showing greens?

    We usually don't recommended doing back to back reductions because the depot from the higher dose can still be effecting the numbers.

    It can take 6 cycles (sometimes even longer at those higher doses like Summer is on) to drain the depot down to where you'll start seeing the real results

    I'd hold this new 10U dose for now .....hopefully he'll settle down for you soon!
