Default Re: Otis back from Doc Bob's

Nice. If he stays negative more frequently and you get worried you could always drop his daytime dose down 1/2u since he went up a full unit in the AM.

Hopefully this is the magic number for him! Good luck with the curve this week!

Bill, I can also change his thread title if you want since I noticed it still says back from Doc Bob's. Just let us know.

Whatever you think is best for the thread.

I'll know if this is "real" after his test tonight and tomorrow. Although, I did test him 2x today as I found it hard to believe.

I believe Natalie commented on the relationship between blood glucose and urine glucose levels in the past week or so. I can't find her post. Do you recall what it was she said?

Hopefully, he'll become a candidate for home blood testing in the near future. For now, if this holds up, I'll be quite pleased knowing he is hovering around 180. You know, the constant real high blood sugar levels have to have a real negative impact on organs other than the eyes ... kidneys, etc. I want this lil' guy around as long as possible!

Have another appointment in two weeks with the eye doc. I've decided to do both eyes at one time. One cataract surgery has 1/2 the risk of a "very bad outcome" than two and the total cost is a whole lot less than two separate surgeries.
