    95 and the vet want to increase his Vetsulin? She needs to get another vet. To have her increase the dose without testing is just asking for trouble.

    Priority is now. 95 @ +2.5.

    +3 =70

    Still safe but early. On Vetsulin. New member so not here yet.

    Human. She is using hers. She was not testing at all. Still in safe zone but dropped fast in +2.5 and +3 . Waiting for next test.

    Thank goodness she had access to that meter!

    Unfortunately I can't stay - just took my sleep medication and about to pass out. Fingers and paws crossed for a safe and uneventful cycle.

    +2.5=95.

    If drops any more, I suggest ER. Hopefully it was a one time vomit because of the food and syrup.

    If ER trip doesn't happen, will need to intensively monitor right throughout the cycle till at least +10 (sometimes the chrystalline fraction can tamp down BGs a little between +7 and +10).

    If it were my cat, I would reduce the next dose. Vetsulin doses which produce nadirs under 100 aren't really desirable because there's not enough of a safety margin should a cushion against unexpected factors be needed during the cycle.

    Good to see you too, Paula. Things have been - and continue to be - very, very rough.

    I hope that the Universe is being kinder to you and yours. :bighug:

    He's still at the vet they kept him to monitor. His level was 404 at 7am eastern time. So they gave him 2 units and calling his pcp today to figure out a plan.
