    This morning I read a helpful article about how your BG is heading at 2 hours post shot. It gave percentages and gave a guideline on how things would be heading at nadir. I can’t remember if it was Prozinc specific or not. It was something like if at 2 hours it dropped 50% you would be heading for disaster at nadir, etc. The percentages were helpful to know but I can’t remember where I found it on this site. Thanks

    It's an expanded write-up I did specific to Prozinc.
    A bit more information than was contained in Chris & China (GA) post about the +2 BG number being an indicator of what direction the BG numbers were headed.
    That +2 test can be invaluable. Highly recommend getting one every cycle if possible. Especially in the PM cycle, when you may need to get some sleep. ;)

    I wrote it up in a Word document, and copy and paste it here as needed.
    I should probably put it out on google drive for folks to find easier.
    Will try to remember to do that, if someone bugs me about it.:facepalm::rolleyes::p

    I read it too, why I'm testing +2 almost every day
    Just missed the fact that I could take a break from testing if numbers go up :banghead:

    Bug, bug Deb!!:p:D:D:D

    The information @Deb & Wink posted is indeed helpful. However, please keep in mind that every cat is different. You need to know how your cat responds to insulin and to food. You need to know when your cat's insulin onset and nadir fall. You also need to keep in mind that there can be considerable variation depending on which insulin you're using. Deb's information is based in experience and observation. It's not based on scientific research -- it doesn't make it any less useful but when you described this as an "article," I immediately thought in terms of a veterinary journal article versus a post on this board and was scratching my head.

    @SashaV Would you see if you can edit it? You should NOT be able to if I set up the permissions correctly.
