nice looking curve, congrats!

when did you raise the insulin to 8?

i would certainly wait, do another curve in 7 days.. without any changes
and let your vet know these results.

its recommended to do a curve then make changes only to the lowest number.

No treats
chicken raises blood sugar!!

you.ve raised the insulin to 8 without acurve. then did a curve after only 3 or 4 days making this curve Not true.

keep testing he.s dropping. please have some syrup on hand.

test after food before you inject insulin to avoid hypoglycemia!!!!

regulation is blood sugar under 250 for the better part of the day.
to prevent organ damage blood sugar is recommended under 200.

your at a point now where you need tobe careful and test often especially after food before you inject he should be at least 200.

going up 1/2 unit gets you closer to that 250 and under. test test test
