    Previous day: http://www.felinediabetes.com/FDMB/threads/10-10-lantus-flash-amps-212.220308/
    286 today, doesn't seem terrible, but at least he's not 300 in the morning now. Nothing more to report besides he's eating 1 1/2 cans of wet food/day now compared to the can a day he used to eat w/dry food, makes sense he's hungrier and doesn't want to lose weight right away. Instead of a breakfast and dinner model, where insulin was given at those 2 times, insulin is still given at those times, but he gets a lunch and midnight snack as well so it's 4 small meals instead of 2 large ones which reduces the chance he'll overeat or food sits in the bowl too long which he ignores.

    Nice to see two YELLOW starts in a row and hopefully another blue today! Good idea to give Flash 4 smaller meals.
    Have a great day!

    Hope you can test tonight...please be sure to get a 2+ and possibly more tests if Flash is headed down...if he starts to go too low too fast...bring out the medium carb food and start feeding...so he doesn't go too low...now's the time to be very watchful.

    Just saw this, glad I tested tonight of course, he is 83 but doing ok. What I'm curious about though is if he's not peeing on the kitchen table and not drinking as much water and using the litter box, why is he peeing on the carpet when he sleeps for awhile? Does he not care enough to make it to the litter box now, is that part of diabetes. Do you all just deal w/your floors smelling like urine, or did you get rid of the carpet to make it easier to deal with?

    That means he's earned a reduction!! So tomorrow, you'd drop his dose down to 1.75!! Woo Hoo!!

    So, I use LANTUS SOLOSTAR INSULIN PEN 3ml 100 units/ml. I'm not sure how I could adjust it to 1.75, seems like it just handles 1 unit increments.

    I use the Lantus Solostar pen as well - however I use Relion syringes to draw the dose from the pen by pushing the needle of the sryinge through the rubber stopper on the Solostar pen. Are you using the Pen to administer the dose? If so, you'll want to purchase some U-100 syringes right away so you can reduce the dosage as needed...since its recommended that you increase/decrease by .25 increments, the Pen is never going to be able to do that - those Pens are meant for use by humans who use much larger amounts and can dial the settings up or down by one unit doses. Please purchase some syringes as soon as you can so you can reduce the dose.
