I am using relion premier. This is a no shoot situation, right?
@JanetNJ can you help? I'm not familiar with Prozinc
190 is really v close to 200. Can you stall for 30 min and see if it is going up? You jumped right from 2 units to 3. That's a big increase. It's recommended you raise in 0.25-0.5 increments. Can you get a mid cycle reading today? Id probably only do 2.5 u if you see it going up esp since it's a lower than usual preshot.
I received the same advice from the moderator of the facebook page(that is to decrease dose to 2.25 or 2.5). I will get a mid cycle reading and PMPS and give the lower dose.
Sounds good. Hope you get great numbers today
Thank you Janet! What am I looking for with the lowered dose? Obviously the goal is for his BG to normalize.
It could be that your cat does need 3 u, but with the much lower preshot than normal it was safe to go with a bit less. What we ideally want to see is your cat to spend some time in the 50-120 range mid cycle. ProZinc usually peeks 5-7 hours after you shoot. So a tests in that time frame are helpful.
I just took a reading and it's back up to 393.
Ok so he's bouncing up. We'll better than too low.
I expected it since he didn't have any insulin this morning. Trying not to worry about what it will be at PMPS.
Oh you didn't give him the 3 u?
No, I ended up skipping it because I didn't wait to retest before I fed him.
