    Hey all,

    Can y’all look at Monster’s SS? His numbers have been pretty good lately. I just tested (+11 but no insulin this am) and he is at 191. Should I hold, give 0.5, or give 1.0? He is on Vetsulin.

    Thanks!

    There isn't a lot of mid cycle numbers to see how low he goes. I would hold off since he may be recovering from a bounce from that .5 from yesterday. If he's over 200 I would maybe give him .5 again and then see if you can get a +2 reading to see what it does to him.

    Thanks Mum. I just started home testing, so I don’t have much data of him on insulin. I’m about to retest and feed.

    He is 176, so I did not shoot.

    I am thinking if you remove the dry food, you maybe able to simply control his DB with food. His numbers are nice. Agree with mum need a bit more data to confirm. If his numbers are similar it's an option to look at. The dry maybe pushing his BG just over normal range.

    Good point on the dry food. I’m going to start that tonight. I f el like we are so close to staying in normal range. Thank you Marvin’s Mom!

    Nichole - keeping my fingers crossed that Monster is headed towards OTJ (off the juice)!

    Mum, I know!! :cat::bighug: He was at 97 this morning. I ordered samples of Dr. Elsey’s and Young Again. If he likes them, I will pull him completely off the DM.

    Happy Thanksgiving to all!
