    Sweet Pea has never been remotely this low PMPS. It's always been black or red. She's on 1.5. Do I reduce? Skip?

    ETA- Stalling to retest in 20 minutes

    I would definitely reduce, it looks like a bounce clearing cycle. If you can't monitor, you could skip. Hopefully someone with vetsulin experience can chime in on dose.

    I just retested twice and got 425 and 444, which seems more likely. Is it possible the 195 was a wonky strip/bad test?

    I don't know what the Vetsulin protocols are for shooting low numbers, but when Lucy has a lower PS than I am used to and I am uncomfortable, I will skip her shot.

    Yeah, it's quite possible....if you got 2 in the 400's, I'd chalk that 195 up to a wonky strip

    I think we all have had a wonky strip before! Sometimes I won't get a good drop on my strip and I'll get a strange reading. :cat:

    Did one more test and got 452. Thinking the first one was an error. Hopefully!

    And thank you so much for the swift replies!! This journey has been one of the most stressful of my life! And I am currently going through testing with my dad who's experiencing memory issues to see if he's having brain issues. Aaggh! I'm losing my mind!
