    ** I posted this in the Prozinc forum. Sorry, I'm not sure where it belongs. **

    So Buddy & I are only 2 weeks into this journey. My Vet told me to give him is insulin if is BG is over 6. Based on the recommendations in the group I should not give it to him if under 10/11. I just tested him for his PM PS. It's 8.6 Based on what we have been doing I would give him his shot. If I don't because it is under 10 what might happen overnight? If it's high that's OK, but might it get too low because I didn't give it? Am I thinking of this backwards? Do I not need to worry about it going too low because he didn't get his insulin? Will not giving insulin when it is needed make him go low? Here is his spreadsheet for reference.

    Prozinc is and in and out insulin. Buddy shouldn't go low if no insulin.

    I would recommend you get some tests in during the pm cycle otherwise you are missing half the data. And cats often go lower at night.
    Getting a before bed test in every night is a good habit to get into. Depending on how low the test has gone down, you may need to set the alarm and get up and test again.

    Wow great numbers esp for so early in. He'll be in remission quickly I'll bet.
