    Vet wants to go to 5u and do another curve! I've done 2 curves in the past week and am doing a mid cycle test when I can. His pre shot numbers are still very high but I seem to be seeing inconsistent numbers mid cycle and his 2 curves were conflicting. Vet wants to hold off on food during a curve cycle unless I see a hypo number during the curve? Advice?

    Do not increase the dose. You are getting sufficient response from the insulin right now that increasing will cause bouncing. If you haven't already please post over in the Prozinc forum when you need dosing advice. One of the values of FDMB is that it's a peer reviewed forum. Since only a couple of prozinc users wander out to this main forum, if I give dosing advice here it isn't likely to be as peer-reviewed as it would be in the ISG. It's much safer if more eyes are on your concerns.

    I would decrease the dose, vice increase. When you increased to 4 you generally obtained higher BG than you were on 3.
