Re: My Monster Vinny
I did a curve this past Saturday. Our vet asked that we raise Vinny from 18 to 18.5 units BID. I started this Monday night so I thought by Saturday Vinny should be adjusted. :)

242 5:30 am before food and insulin
131 8 am
121 10 am
152 12 pm
124 3 pm
268 6 pm before food and insulin

What do you think? I'm just a bit concerned by the lowest numbers, but this was done with the AT2 and mine reads a bit higher than the vets.

Otherwise, Vinny is doing remarkable! :cool: I can't believe what a willing test subject he's been! :D

Re: My Monster Vinny
Nice. :) I'd hold steady. You can always check the low point periodically too.

Re: My Monster Vinny
Wow, what I would have done for numbers like those!

I also would not change anything for now. Maybe a week later do an abbreviated curve to be sure the dose hasn't settled in more lowering the lows.

Later on if you want to bridge the gap between the low and the high to get it within 100 points, you could try adding just a hair of carbs to the meal. For rit now though I wouldn't mess with it.

Congratulations! Tara

Re: My Monster Vinny
yes as others said i would leave the dose alone

you can start playing with food or snacks maybe that could remove the spike even further .

Re: My Monster Vinny
:o So...I'm a dumb butt!

I ordered some Free Style test strips from I'm not sure where. I figured out I had one more AT2 strip left so I decided to do a quick comparison. I set the meter on 7...40 points higher. I set the meter on 35...40 points lower! I had an 80 point spread! :eek:

So I went back to Craig's post and realized...I bought the wrong thing. :( So, I just went and bought what I do need. Anyone need Free Style InsulLinx Test Strips? :o
