    Chinkers bgs are dropping & he will keep dropping till around +5 (noon) and +6 (1P), should I be concern? His bgs are usually all over the place so I don't know if he headed for a low 50bg. I'm not sure how I should handle this situation, I'm assuming test, test, & more test correct? I usually feed him a snack (fancy feast classic) about noon time (+5), should I still give it to him?

    You could give s tsp of his regular LC food right now, test in 30 minutes and see if it slows him down and holds him steady until his next scheduled meal. I always stuck with our feeding schedule and factored it in to any decision to guide the numbers between meals.

    Those blues are lovely.

    I just tested him at +4 (11A) bg at 72 and fed tsp of fancy feast, he ate it up. Anything else I need to do, I'm very nervous/panicky, first time deal with downward trend toward the peak.

    You got this.:cool:

    Test in 20-30 minutes and see where he is at.

    Do you have HC food on hand, in case you need it?

    Perfect. I’ll be watching for the number.

    Chinker may be angling for a reduction...

    eta- keep the ss updated so we all know what is happening.

    Just did bg its at 91, food bought back up. That was nerve wrecking! So now I need to watch bg in case the bgs start falling again, correct?

    Well done!
    test in 30 minutes - that would be +4.5, a half hour before the next regularly scheduled meal correct? If that is the case and he is above 50, then re test 30 minutes after the meal.
