    Evening all!
    Happy Friday!! The Levemir has arrived!! I am soo excited! I am so sorry for not posting earlier today, but I forgot to update the spreadsheet with this morning's data, and I figured you'd want all the details first. I would very much like to start him tomorrow morning if at all possible (otherwise I'd wait until next weekend). You can see the contraband has had a lasting effect on his BGs, and he's just broken out of it today. His current dose is 3.0u Basaglar. Would you start him at 1.75u or 2.0u Levemir? I was thinking 2.0u, only because it's easier to draw up. ;)

    I appreciate your thoughts, and I thank you in advance!!! I hope you all have a stupendous night and your kitties stay safe!!

    We usually recommend starting at 70% of the dose when going from Lantus (Glargine) to Levemir, so if he's on 3U of Basaglar, start at 2U of Levemir

    Good luck with the Levemir!!

    Good luck with the Lev. I hope you and Lou like it as much as I did. Make sure you can monitor closely the first couple of cycles, in case Lou is one of those cats that responds strongly to the switch.

    Thank you so much everyone! I have a good feeling about this switch. We'll start him at 2.0u tomorrow morning!
    Will do! Thanks for the heads up!
