    Gideon is pretty much staying in the BLUES after the LOW GREEN night he had on Friday. I was reading some info posted in the FDMB files and I found this interesting:
    "A dose reduction will usually result in a need for less stored insulin. The excess may be released into the bloodstream faster than usual, especially if several dose reductions are done back-to-back."

    Gideon had 3 dose reductions in 3 days, so I think the scenario above may have been what happened.

    Hoping Gideon Blue will need less and less insulin, or at least remain stable with nice consistent numbers,

    Have a great day!

    My Gideon was 144@PMPS. At +3=65.
    He will be decreased to Lantus 2 unit BID in AM.

    Hope he is not being decreased too quickly, but it seems like he is asking for the decreases.

    Time will tell. So far so good. If he needs an increase at any point you can take it. Some cats just race down the dosing scale without looking back.
