Default Re: Who took their dog to a specialist? Advice?

Her last curve 12/23/19 at 6 units was: 386 (fasting 6am), 458, 178, 198, 221, 320, 445. That's from 0600 to 6pm every 2h. And then I checked again at 11pm just to see what the peak was, and it was 94, which the specialist seemed to not like that it's pretty low, so that was part of the reason why she lowered it to 5. But the previous curve on 5 units was higher: 446, 450, 391, 367, 416, 410, 502. It never even went lower than 300's at the peak which is really weird. The curve 2 weeks before that looked better, on 6 units, but it went low at one point which is why my vet wanted her back on 5: 94 (fasting), 157, 59 (at peak 11am), 198, 405, 539. As you can see her curves are just all over the place.

The best curve we had was back in end of sept, it was on 5 units: 349, 415, 190, 161, 200, 189, 133 (before 6pm feed). I'm not sure how to interpret these really, and the specialist didn't tell me anything in depth about it either, she mentioned that maybe increasing the dose makes her compensate by creating higher sugar, not sure how that works. Anyone experience that?
