    I'd give a little high-carb now (if the snack wasn't HC), and test in another 30mins. You can add a couple drops of honey or karo syrup to LC food for a little carb boost.

    It does look like Bella is asking for even less insulin! Let's see what others say about a specific dose, but my thought, looking at the spreadsheet is that not only is he going low (again) today, but he very likely did last night after you went to bed, as well. That red number this morning was probabyl a "bounce" from a low.

    He seems to resolve bounces very quickly (1-2 cycles), so that helps to figure things out!

    I'd test again in 30, just to make sure he's on the way up for real (no snacks this time).

    Whew! He's giving you a run for your money! :eek: I suggest you drop to 2 u tonight and try that for a few days. If it turns out that was too much he can be brought up slowly in 0.25 u increments. He's on a mission!

    It could be a bounce from the lime green number.

    It's probably just a bounce from that steeeeep drop this morning. Is he acting normal otherwise?

    You didn't do anything wrong-- though I admit, it's hard sometimes not to take it personally when they throw you a bad number like that! He'll come down, don't worry.

    He didn’t eat much of his dinner, so I don’t give insulin? Do I just wait till he eats
