    Right. Feels like I have written this email a couple of times...but we are in the third after the last green sight on hercules SS. His numbers have come down, but I haven't seen a run of greens for a while.

    Is it time to try an increase, what do you guys think?

    His patterns continue to be wonky.... I have noticed that his PMPS tends to be more consistent, while AMPS vary much more. I wonder with the bouncing and bounce-braking cycles, whether I am missing some action on the PM cycle that is important? For example I don't quite get what happened last night? Did he go further down after his +7? I went to sleep afetr giving him a top up assuming he was close to rising again. But if it was a bounce breaking cycle maybe he continued to go low? Not sure what he is bouncing from today?

    The Amps is often tge last to come down although not the case with my cat. I would increase. I hope it brings lower numbers.

    Look like we are heading down again.... should I increase even if I see green numbers tonight?

    I would increase, more insulin will also help get rid of those high numbers.

    Thank you! I am a bit nervous that pushing on with the insulin, I will give more wind to the rebounds?
    I guess I will only figure out by trying....

    Since you're following TR and it's been 6 cycles I'd agree an increase is in order...let's give Herc a little nudge to get him to drop those higher numbers and spend more time in those nice low blues...and even do a little toe touching in the lagoon...

    Just keep testing and if you notice any big drops - then start feeding medium carb to slow things down...don't let him get away from you on the dropping...if you can prevent him from dropping too low, you can deter those bounces...steer, steer, steer.

    Could you please add AMPS to the title?
