Re: New to this forum

I think the best thing to do is do and full 12 curve and include all times and readings from all including the sensor and the hand held meters
then we can see more what's going on

Re: Non-repeating BG numbers

i think you can try reducing the dose before changing insulin as the vetinsulin is working. drop one unit at a time wait then do a curve
i think the curve should flatten out.
