    Give LC-MC. Both now and at +1.

    You set the auto-feeder to move to an empty slot 2 hours before PS, so he can't eat in the 2 hour window before PS :)

    I think testing at +1 is up to you. George has been surfing in green numbers. If you're nervous and think his number might drop, then by all means, get a +1 test. If you think he'll just keep on surfing, test and feed him at +2.

    A +2 should be fine but do feed LC-MC at +1

    I can put some honey into my medium carb.
    He only eats pate, I'll run to the store to grab more added I give him mc with some honey? Or syrup?

    He had a similar drop last night but he’s getting too close to going under 50 si I would give a little hc.

    I'll get some hc. I thought that's what I got, but didn't realize it's more mc. Since it's much a lot more variety for high carb when it's not pate

    Don’t rush to get hc, If you add honey to mc it’s hc. She came up nicely last night.

    Bandit hates honey but they inhale their food when low. Test in 30 mins?

    That makes sense. I'll test him now. I meant he likes it too much, earlier I had a typo you instead of HE

    I got that. I meant to say that it must not be the honey as much as wanting to gobble down food when they go low. :)

    Shall we do some LC-HC so he doesn't dip later in the cycle and test in an hour?

    I didn't feed after 3.5. He is 65 at +5.
    I didn't feed a lot. Teaspoon.

    I'm thinking lc for now every two hours teaspoon

    I don't know if I should still feed him some. It's been over 3-4 hours since he had a teaspoon

    Thank you. Med carb or low carb? I didn't give him too much at dinner so I can spread it out but wonder if that's why he dropped so low this morning. (If I gave to few calories/carbs)

    Depends on the bg. If a drop at +1 all mc. If up a little lc. If same or lower at +2 you need mc.

    Sorry. Just saw this. Get that +2 because he didn’t get a food bump. I suspect he will be in the 50’s and if so need mc/hc mix.

    Give a little lc/mc mix. It’s early. I’d test at +3.5. I’m glad I was wrong about the 50’s.
