    Hi everyone!

    We are so happy- it’s been two months since Buddy’s diagnosis and her numbers keep getting better and better! Today she was at 105 for her PMPS. We are really hopefully that we can get her into remission. We are currently giving 0.5 units of Prozinc. Her nadirs have been good, usually about 61 or so. So our question is, when do we lower the dose? If we test her pre-shot, and she is in the healthy range of 50-100, do we skip the shot, or should we continue giving her normal dose or a partial dose to keep up her great number? Any advice from those who have achieved and maintained remission would be much appreciated

    Have you read through the 2 dosing methods and decided on one? On Start Low, Go Slow, she's earned the reduction down to .25 so I think it might be worth giving it a try and see how it goes.

    You can always go back up if you need to!

    Her spreadsheet sure looks a lot nicer in the last month or so!

    You're already shooting lower pre-shots than many people do. Fantastic job!

    A second option, besides cutting the dose by 0.25U, would be to skinny the dose.
    But for now, I'd try that 0.25U reduction, down to 0.25U Prozinc insulin total and see what happens.

    You can always increase again if the reduction fails, like Chris said.
