    Charlie was 273. At +6. She ate. Gave shot. .5. at +3 she is 93.
    When I was at the vet to get my cansulin she was 11.1. lower than my one touch. She was also quite stressed. Could my one touch be out?.
    Or her pancreas is just sputtering? Needs some more time to heal.

    What is confusing you? To me it looks like she went down and then started coming back up at +4, so maybe getting kinda short action from the caninsulin. (I'm confused though because I'm not seeing the numbers you mention in your SS)

    Remember that meters can vary without being "wrong", up to 15-20%. That means that if BG is 200, a meter could be reading 20% less, 160, and another one 20% more, 240. So a gap of 11 is really nothing.

    That's basically what I was curious about. If meters can vary. Also. I'm only giving .5 units. And i was just surprised at the drop. She had not had insulin for 7 months untill I recently checked and here #s were on the rise. Just getting use to it again.
