If your dog doesn't have a habit of throwing up the food, I recommend giving the shot right after she finishes eating. It seems like your dog processes her food rather quickly. My dog, on the other hand is slowwww. With such a quick absorption, you need to get that insulin in at the time food is eaten so it can combat the rise and start working sooner. You might find a real difference with this small change.

that's about normal my jesses drop slows down at hour 4 and is done by hour 6 maybe the earlier shot may help if you can get that 400 down you may see very nice numbers

Re: Sissy's Mom
 
It's neither too early or too late. It just is. Don't worry about trying to move the peak. What is needed is less of a drop and lower numbers overall. But let's see what happens when you give food and shot closer together. :-)

Insulin peak could have been before 11 and she was already heading up with the 221. Actually, not really any significant difference between 221 and 243. Anyway, you might hold the insulin steady for another day? I imagine the 5pm is going to be high, will you try to inject right after the meal?

There is no right, or wrong insulin peak. Some dogs might peak early, like in only 2-3 hours; others peak around 6 hours; still others peak shortly before the next meal (11-12 hours).

I'm going to do 30 minutes after meal and stay at 6 1/2 units.should I still so curve Saturday as I planned? Sorry if this double posts,having trouble getting this to go through.!!

Re: Sissy's Mom
 
If I remember corectly this is the 2nd day on 6 1/2? Then Saturday would be ok to curve. You can doa curve anywhere from 3-5 days after a dose change. As the numbers get closer to ideal you may want to let the doses settle in for a bit longer.

Try to keep things as consistent as possible three days prior to curving.

I look forward to it.

Re: Sissy's Mom
 
:):) can't wait to do it. Way over due. Sat will be 4th full day at 6 1/2, but she was on 6 1/2 for awhile before. Only 6 for 3 doses when I changed to novolin.
