    I wouod skip the shot based on your SS data. From your SS it seems that 2 units is too high. The UTI may be resolving due to the antibiotics and thus it seems insulin needs are decreasing.

    why don't you stall without feeding for a half hour and see if the number is coming up. If it goes over 200 then maybe give a reduced dose.

    Problem solved. I suggested no shot and a dose reduction to 1.75 u.
