Assuming she doesn't drop below 100ish, I'd probably only reduce by 1/2 unit. I'd do the small reduction just for peace of mind, as long as you test once or twice during the day you'd see if she was heading lower than you like.

You are doing great!

Re: Sissy's Mom
the type of curve how consistent it is over time when is the lowest point in the day and is that consistent which is important if you are running low and maybe got an hour left till you start seeing a rise you may not need to intervene with some liquid sugar or you know the last 2 hours of a drop only sees for example maybe only 30 points and your pup is at 120 you once again may not have to worry about it

early on maybe you want to be a bit more conservative because the patterns and trends are not that well established

If you mean by that the information for your <journal<, I used to track the weather, if we had company, if we left him alone, how many bowel movements, how many pees, days on insulin bottle, vaccines, etc, anything at all that you think may affect Sissy's numbers.

Re: Sissy's Mom
Well,Sissy and I made it through the first novolin dose. I gave hee 6 units.so far today her numbers have been about typical, all though this am,after food before insulin she was 450.not to uncommon for an after food reading.then she was 148 at 10a.m. 134 at 11 a.m. and 258 at 1 p.m. I am going to test again before food or insulin,and then a few hrs after insulin. What about staying with the six units for a day or two to see what she does????

Re: Sissy's Mom
That sounds quite reasonable. A day or two before going back up wouldn't hurt just to be sure! Hugs!
