    Please see SS, notes explain my thought process. Wondering if I should reduce AM dosage to avoid these PM stalls? Does it matter if AM and PM doses are different?

    Hoping to get a +4/5 test tonight to see how low he's going on the 1U.

    I might try 2 or 2.25 and see if you can so two doses of 2 a day.

    Amazing, only thing I've changed is food... It's like I have a new (old) cat!

    Food makes a
    huge difference.

    I am not surprised, the same happened with my boy when he was diagnosed first. It wasn't like he entirely lived on dry food, but it was about 1/3 of his diet. I completely eliminated it and we saw an immediate improvement as well.

    Oooook.So I moved to 2U bid yesterday, and we hit 82 today. That's still an automatic reduction to 1.75U correct?

    He's trying to make me go gray, I swear.

    Not sure what to make of recent numbers (past two days)?

    Am I doing the right thing with the flexible dosing? Based on numbers I think I'm doing all right, it's just all over the place.

    Should I be testing ketones at this point? It is NOT easy with him, so I've been conservative with it to avoid stressing him out and ending up with pee all over the house.

    Great numbers!!! I wouldn't bother testing ketones at this point unless he's acting weird.
