    Hello @Marje and Gracie @tiffmaxee @Wendy&Neko - Hope you are having a nice weekend. I stayed up as late as I could with Zed and we finally saw some yellow. We are proceeding with the increase to 2.0 units today and hope we have broken through this red wall and are working our way out of glucose toxicity. Let me know if you see anything I don't. :)

    Taking a look at your previous post, linked here for continuity: http://www.felinediabetes.com/FDMB/threads/6-24-zed-amps-628-need-advice-asap.231442/
    one of the suggestions that you seem to have missed was Marje saying
    Last night you saw blood sugar in the 200's, so you should not have increased today. With TR, if you are seeing nadirs below 300, which you did last night, you hold the dose for six cycles, then increase by 0.25 units.

    Unfortunately it looks like Zed is now bouncing in response to those yellow last night. :rolleyes:

    What Wendy said :p

    Patience, Grasshopper :) It’s tempting but don’t chase the numbers ;)

    Shoot!! I did totally miss that post and misunderstood the dose increase guidance. I guess we are still bouncing, although we've had some 300's. I couldn't test late the other night as we had a family emergency. Please let me know what you think we should do this week. I will now continue kicking myself in the a$$. @Marje and Gracie @Wendy&Neko

    Hopefully you'll see some yellow tonight. If nothing below 300, you can increase to 2.5 units tomorrow. If you do see yellow but nothing below 200, you can increase to 2.25 units.

    And please start a new post next time. We like one post to day - easier to keep track of the multiple kitties here. For more helpful notes, read this: http://www.felinediabetes.com/FDMB/threads/6-26-psa-please-read.231511/
