    It's only been 4 cycles at 2.75. On TR, you hold the dose for at least 6 cycles.

    Hi Chris, its been 6 cycles as of this morning and he was at his highest amps read for a while now. I'm worried the higher dose may not be the right thing. I am trying to go in hard at moment as he is leaving us on 29th Nov. (So strict TR.) Do I just keep increasing until I get a lower nadir? Or is it possible it's to much insulin giving him higher numbers? Also should I wait the 5 days before changing dose?

    Thank you

    Could you look at your spreadsheet? Including PMPS tonight, I'm counting 5 cycles at the 2.75 dose Are Chris and I missing something?

    is your SS up to date? I think it’s confusion bc of time zones and not seeing the doses on your SS. What country are you in? Knowing that may help those of us in Canada and the US help keep days straight (it’s still Nov 15 where I am :))

    Ah, neat! I'm in the US - Eastern Time. When you have time, can you update your SS? I just see #s up through 15/11 day time. Updating may help those that were commenting on the dose :bighug:

    yup I can see the updated data! I don't give dosing advice but perhaps @Chris & China (GA) or @Sienne and Gabby (GA) can stop by again now that we have your SS straightened out :bighug:

    BTW, I use Google Sheets on my iphone/ipad to update my SS. I often forget Jax's glucose reading by the time I get to my computer :p

    Actually maybe Elise @tiffmaxee can stop by if she's still around? Colleen was asking about increasing Pantera but her SS wasn't up to date this morning - it's all straightened out now so perhaps you can help advise?

    It looks like you can increase tonight or if you would rather in the morning. It’s up to you. Good luck!
