    I would have went to 4, too. It'll be interesting to see his numbers tonight.
    If you change flavors it may mean a difference. My 2 can only eat two flavors or their BG spikes.

    BTW, if you find you do need to edge the dose up again it might be an idea to only increase in 0.5 unit increments (unless BG numbers deteriorate markedly or ketones show up in the urine - and if the latter you would need to contact the vet ASAP).

    Opps I gave Davey 6 this evening when I got home is that what you mean that I shouldn't have switched from 4 to 6 today as I did?

    Sorry for confusing things! I thought you might be giving the 4IU dose again this evening so I made the suggestion about doing any future upward adjustments in small increments in case you found that the reduction to 4 units BID didn't hold well.

    For me it's a total head-wreck; feels like the screen is screaming at me. (No hyperbole.)

    Thanks for the tag! :cat:

    Tip:

    Pop back over to your thread on L&L, edit the thread title (see top RHS of screen for Thread Tools), select the Question Mark prefix next to the title and save the changes. It will attract more attention to your thread because the experienced members there scan the thread list for members with specific questions. (The traffic volume is high on the board and threads tend to disappear down the list very quickly.)
