    So at +3 Gideon Blue's BG = 158. He is resting, so I am not going to encourage him to eat, but will retest at +4.
    How low should I let him go before I encourage him to eat something? I know it is a dance, and it depends when his nadir is, which seems to change.

    That's a pretty big drop. You should probably wake him up and see if he will eat a little bit of LC to slow things down.

    OK. Just gave him saw Weruva PLAY food which is 7.7% carbs. Thank you. I guess I need an actual map on what %age food to give at what time for what BG.
    I am trying my best for my sweet Gideon Blue.

    +4=118. I just fed a TBSP of 12% carb food to slow him down just a bit.

    +5=129, so the 12% carb food help prevent a quick decrease.

    You're doing fine. He's surfing nicely.

    If you see a big drop (100 points or more), you want to feed to slow the drop. If it's a nice slow slide, you don't have to feed as often, unless he goes low.

    I am very concerned. Gideon is down to 103 and he is only at +2. Insulin hasn't even kicked in yet. Just fed him TBSP of 15% carb. Husband will retest at +3 and get up one time. I am off to work, and wish I was home..
