    How does she usually respond to food? Does her regular food bring her up? Does she get much of a food bump? If so, I would try regular food for now and see if it slows her down any and monitor closely. When is her pm nadir, typically?

    And wow, Yum! :D I can’t believe my eyes!

    Her raw food is almost 0 carb.
    She doesn't have a clear nadir in the evening.
    I will test her again in an hour and see if I need to stop this drop.
    It's been a long time since I've done a reduction. These huge doses are disorienting.
    I wasn't expecting much on day 1 of a new dose. I think her highs last night and this morning were misleading---they might have been influenced by her not feeling well yesterday.

    Could be a little bounce breaking from that 180 yesterday and she has more momentum to get to green. Asia eats radcat too, recently it gives her a huge food bump and helps her surf, don’t ask me why. It’s not always just about the carbs, I think it also has to do with how quickly the food gets in to them, the fat and protein have a hand in this as well. If you think she still has a way to go down and you’re worried, go ahead and give her a bit of gravy and I would test again in 30 to see what it does (or doesn’t do) for future reference, especially now that you are on a high dose, it may be a bit different.

    Long term diabetics get a reduction at 40 on a human meter (80% of 50).
    For Yum on an AT2 I guess that is about 54.
    Just to be prepared...

    I ignored the long term diabetic rule with an acro, cause Neko held reductions if she earned them. Plus I am cautious with a larger dose. But you have to learn what works for Yum.


    Love the green. :D She's not dropping fast now. Maybe see if just LC will hold her.

    Oh my goodness, Yum! What are you doing? :eek: Step away from the shark net!

    Good thing you are watching her - she's full of surprises tonight!
