    I don't have it on the spreadsheet but when the vet first started me off with p this time it was 1.5 and that did not change his sugar levels they stayed at 400 for a couple days so I'm thinking 2 units might be better instead of 3 units. I need to go in and add that for the 14th, 15th and 16th. I know you said 1 unit but I just remembered the 1.5 didn't make them go down but then the vet raised it to 3 and that may have been too much? Idk.

    Most of us responded on your thread over in Prozinc but we suggested starting at 1.0U because too much insulin can cause high BG as well as too little. Your first diabetic-go-ground, he actually had some nice numbers on 1.0U before he went into remission. The higher doses might be causing him to bounce in high numbers. I am still going to stick with my suggestion of holding 1.0U, as long as he is over 200, for a few days :). I know it can be difficult to stay with a lower dose when you see higher numbers but if they are bounce numbers, we don't like to respond with higher dose based on those numbers. They are, in a matter of speaking, somewhat transparent :bighug:

    Okay thank you so much I'll give him one unit tonight if he's under two and go from there. The vet call me back but I didn't get a chance to answer the phone.

    Wow! Yep, I think that shows us that 1 unit is a good dose for tomorrow! :)

    Him being 138 for PMPS, down from 454 AMPS also supports the 2.0U might be too much. Looking forward to seeing how the 1.0U does :cat:

    Yes to what everyone else is saying. The low pre-shot is showing you that the 2units is too high for right now - the nadir should be in the middle of the cycle, not at the end.

    Hi Riley! I posted on your thread over in the prozinc forum also in case other folks are in that forum who can weigh in on this insulin. I would say yes, go ahead and give the 1u as long as you are able to get in a test or two before bed this evening to make sure Riley stays in safe numbers.

    The fact that his BG is dropping on a lowered dose indicates that he was on too high a dose before this. It'll be interesting to see the effect of 1 u on a 206 this evening.
