    Could anybody help me with Duke's dose please, his PM+11 is at 9.5 mmol/L (171) mg/dl) and he's due his injection in 1 hour and he is still quite low. I will post his PMPS in 1 hour.
    Any help on dosing would be greatly appreciated.

    Hi Tee,

    Adding @Panic to your tag list for good measure, in case she might be around. (When Eliz is around it tends to be earlier in the day). Can't help myself because I don't know enough about Prozinc. Duke's getting a great response to it! :cat:

    Hi Tee, he looks like he's heading up so I wouldn't be surprised if he hits 11 (200). MPM has you giving full dose if over 8.3 (150) so theoretically he should be fine. You can always stall or give a token dose if you're not comfortable on his PMPS.

    Get a test in at +2 and it will give you an indication of how the cycle is going to go.

    Thanks @Panic
    He's due his PMPS in about 10 minutes, hopefully he's over 11.0 mmol/L.
    If not i will stall for 30 min and see where he's at.

    His PMPS is at 10.6 mmol/L (191 mg/dl) so i'm going to stall and probably reduce his dose to 1.0u

    I say stall for 30-60 min to make sure he's rising then go ahead and shoot. shooting a fat 1 is a good idea.

    I'm going to test him again in 10 minutes to see where he's at. Another long night. lol.
    He's 30 minutes past his shot time now.

    Latest test shows 12.5 mmol/L (225 mg/dl). so do still give full dose or just a fat 1
