You might check a search site like Good RX. http://www.goodrx.com/

I've never used their special coupon, but the regular prices seem to be correct for the few meds I've searched.

So she was getting 388.75 calories and is now getting 360 calories:

Previous food 311 cal/cup x 1 1/4 cups = 388.75 cal
Current food 360 cal/cup x 1 cup = 360 cal

Wink Re: Sissy's Mom

Yes, I measured a little lite always on the 1/4 cup dco, so she is right on.I had figured it was really close. That was one of the deciding factors, plus I wanted more protein and less carbs, and the Wellness fit that bill.. Thanks for checking my figuring.

Hey Jackie

I just have a question. Since the food change is done, what about injecting right after food to see if this helps.

Did you up Sissy, s insulin yesterday?

Exclamation Re: Sissy's Mom

Hi Mo,
I have injected her right after food for months. I just didn't these past few weeks because she has been so extreme. Just now, at 3 hours after food and insulin, she is at 167!!!!! A slight miracle for her. See where she goes from here. She has always been very sensitive to change, and slow to adapt to it. I need to give her another couple of weeks to see where she will end up, but the 167 is sure nice


Jackie

Yeah, it feels good eh.

Sorry to be a pest but am checking in to see any sign of symogi

Rilieys low would be 2 hours after food and insulin then would rise at 3 hours.

Sissy, s fasting was 305 then 3 hours later 167. Thats approx 150 drop
