315 at 1PM. After 11am when I took her for a walk She then basically went back to the dead dog syndrome again. But she was alive from 6:15am today until a little after 11am so that was nice. I just wish it could be all the time.

What your looking for is overall progress . I have watched jesse come back from quite a few challenges just on her own . The body is quite amazing if given a chance

With a dose adjustment higher you would like to see the overall trend go a bit lower not dramatic but just a step lower . With a change in dose you need to hold for a week or longer and let it settle with no change unless snowball goes to low

The body needs time to adjust to the new reality

379 at 4:52PM Higher than I would like but it did come down from last reading. She has also been more mobile today. Even after 11:15am when she started to just lie there, she is still attempting to do her business outside instead of just falling in a clump.

Its a bit odd snowball drops and rises 2 to 3 times in a 12 hour period and sometimes quite substantial in a short amount of time . It almost looks like the body is trying to keep up with active insulin and sometimes it overshoots

What happens with injected insulin being so different than the natural process .injected insulin is basically time released with NPH insulin . The natural process it is called up on demand sugar or insulin to keep blood sugar stable

Now snowball may never have great regulation but usually thats not a problem for most .

I am sure snowball is very happy with all the extra care

and 250 at 8:00am this morning.

3U given at around 8:30 last night as we were out for an event. She has been lively most of the day yesterday. She did start sleeping after 11:15am yesterday but she was never dropping into a ball when I tried to stand her up.

well jesse was 257 this morning snowball wins and only has been in the game for a short spell

Its possible regulation struggled because of being overfed and not very consistent with the routine . As you can see home testing is helpful . With a little dog and not following the program it can magnify the ups and downs being a bit more extreme and loose stability
