    Yum and I have been affected by hurricane Harvey. Her numbers have bumped up. Maybe it is because she can't go outside anymore? Lack of exercise could be boosting the numbers? She's not acting anxious, more bored and lethargic. Not a great time to give a dose increase, since I am running low on strips and pretty busy. Remember we have an alphatrak 2. If she hits 250 I will do a dose increase. Maybe I need to risk it sooner.

    I'd like to see some more PM tests before you increase

    Most cats do go lower at night and without getting at least a "before bed" test at night, you're missing half your data on what's going on

    Come on now Yum!! Work that juice!!!

    So very sorry that your life has been effected by Harvey. It is very possible that Yum is picking up on your stress from the storm and such.

    I agree with Chris, to try and get some more test in during the PM cycle so you know without a doubt that an increase is warranted. Stay safe.
