    Ok so hi. My cat Cocoa has been having odd blood glucose numbers for about the past month. He is on 0.25 units once or twice a day depending on his reading. Yes I know it should be the same dose but I can not bring myself to giving him the dose when his numbers are low and I need to leave for work. Please take a look at my excel sheet and please let me know if I am doing anything wrong here. I want to know should I be adjusting his does depending on his reading? Is he possibly trying to go into remission?

    Given your comfort level and I would not want to leave her alone if low either, I would dose .25 twice a day even if she’s high for at least a week unless she drops too low. Then I would do a curve the first day I could.

    Good morning :cool:

    Cocoa earned a decrease today based on the AM+1 of 78.
    Since his numbers are not quite all in the normal range I don’t think it’s wise to stop insulin just yet so I recommend you reduce to .1u and shoot every 12 hours.
    I found a magnifying glass helpful when we got to this stage. ;)

    Keep us posted ...

    All those blue numbers on the chart show good regulation. I tend to be more conservative than others. The small doses you are giving are hard to get exact values.

    I don't think you are doing anything wrong - just the opposite. Cocoa's numbers are looking real good. It would not surprise me to see Cocoa go off the juice in the near term.

    Hello again :cool:

    So far so good on the 0.10u.

    What is his feeding schedule/amounts? Any mini meals during the course of a cycle or does he eat only at shot times?
