    I’ve updated my spreadsheet. I’m aware that I have no data on the pm curve at this time. Given the data that I have do her values look strange today?
    She was fed after her 6+ test. At least two hours prior to her pspm test.
    Fed a total of 3 times today.

    Angie, I don't think you meant to use that GA prefix on your thread. GA stands for gone ahead or guardian angel. To change it please go to thread tools at tge top right of the page and edit.:bighug:

    I think she looks good today-- getting some movement with this dose! It's not surprising that she zoomed up afterwards-- it's a normal curve shape.

    One thing that would help interpret this would be more data-- any nighttime tests you can get would be helpful, and/or tests during the day at times other than +6. That way, looking across different days we can get a sense of when exactly the insulin is taking action, just how low Trinity is going, etc. Just from what we can see now, though, looks like she's doing well! How is she feeling lately?

    Yes, it makes people's hearts sink. You were not to know, I know many new members make the same mistake. ;)

    She’s more vocal, like she used to be. Miss Sassy Pants. She wanders around the bedroom more instead of hiding in her tent bed and seems to feel better.
    Mirtaz arrived today. I am starting it tomorrow as she is still syringe fed at this point. She is drinking some water and getting 100ml Sq fluids daily. She has nibbles on a tiny bit of kibble. Thanks for replying.

    I think what you are seeing with that red number is Trinity reacting to the lower BG at +6. This is what we call a bounce and there is nothing you can do about them. Trinity's system has to clear these herself. That blue is a good indication that she is seeing action on this dose. Don't be disheartened as bounces can last a while. Just stick to the dose unless of course she goes low. I agree with Nan, you definitely need to gather more data and possibly do more testing to see what the dose is really doing for her. Not all cats nadir at +6, my Jerry for example tends to nadir at +5. PM testing is also needed as cats tend to go lower at night. Try to get a +2 and again before you go to bed. Remember the more data you have the better.:)

    P.S. When I first joined and started reading and seeing people's usernames, I thought "Wow, there sure are a lot of people here from Georgia!" :oops:

    Trin crashed with BG of 51. No external signs. Gave honey and syringe fed gravy food. That was at 5+, tested again, and now going to test again and update sheet.
    The only thing I did different was apply trans dermal mirtazapine to her ear today

    This test she was back up to 82. Is it ok to wait and test again at 10 pm when I usually give test, feed and give shot? Or should I test again in an hour?
    Having a hard time juggling things today.
