A little concerned with tonight’s PMPS?
It has been six cycles since she was in blue (11/7) and it looks like she has been bouncing. We see two indications when bounces might be ready to clear:
Flat yellow and/or
A high before the break where the BG has been fairly flat but then pops up before the bounce clears.
A +2 test tonight is important to see if she’s starting to clear a bounce.
@Adrienne & Molly
I would increase her dose to 0.5u in the morning if you see this as long as you don’t see a blue AMPS.
ok she has come down some. Do I still increase? This morning? Don’t understand why she’s staying in the yellows @MrWorfMen's Mom
While it looked like Molly was bouncing she isn't coming back down on her own. She hasn't seen blue since the 7th and her last green was on the 2nd. She needs a little more juice to push her back into those better numbers so yes I would increase to 0.5u this AM. Grab a test before you head out the door and leave her food accordingly. She's been teasing with the those flat yellows but she seems to need a little push.
I wasn’t sure to increase. I thought it was every 6 cycles?
Yup. Molly's been at 0.25u for 6 cycles and hasn't seen a blue BG again yet. In total she hasn't seen blue for 9 cycles so time for a dosecrease.
