    Good morning :coffee:

    Yesterday I asked about the cabergoline studies and Wendy listed off who she remembers to be on cabergoline. I know how much this group likes data, so I would love to get the acromegaly autotracker updated for all the cats on here that have acromegaly. I would also like to show it to my vet, like FDMBs own informal study as Wendy said. As of right now, there are no cats on the tracker that are on cabergoline. The only one was Tricia Woods and Hank in 2016, but he was also on Pasireotide.

    If you have an acro cat, can you please add your information to the acromegaly autotracker? I am very interested in what kind of treatment they have gotten if any, updates, and I think it would be a great to have all of their spreadsheet data handy in one place.
    Know someone that is not tagged that has had an acro cat? Please tag them so they can update the tracker as well.
    Appreciate it!

    Oh yeah and side note - I went to go update my SS and the last few days were gone! :eek: Good thing I have it all written down on paper. So odd. Shmee down to 57 @ +6 today :D I do not get excited very easily since the acro diagnosis, but I am really happy he is doing so well blood sugar wise.

    Oh yes of course! I don't know how I could've missed that tag, thank you!

    Data disappearing happens to me daily. I also keep it in hard copy form.

    Will do when I boot up pc. It's way to spread out to do on phone.

    That is odd, that Google Sheets is losing data.

    I just updated Leoberry's records into the AcroTracker. In general, we estimate he could live up to another 3 or 4 years. The next big issue could get him. His White Blood Cell count is pretty low right now, and he is getting Zorbax to knock down whatever infection he has.

    Yes I thought that was very odd, I have used Google Sheets and Docs for years without an issue. I used to use it for school, I could only imagine if I were writing a paper and that happened!! Good thing it was only a few days though. Thanks for updating, Leo sounds to be one tough cookie. I love seeing that his dose has dropped so dramatically! Another 3 to 4 years is long life, I hope the Zorbax helps kick the infection asap.

    Thank you, Bronx has dropped in dose by quite a significant amount, I am happy he is doing so well.

    I'm glad to see the cabergoline is helping to regulate Mavericks blood sugar numbers. I hope it starts to get him into a lower dose soon :bighug:

    Sarah you are a ROCKSTAR with Pig, I truly hope his urinary issues start to fade and his dose starts to come down. You both are such troopers.
