Hi everyone! I've been lurking on this group for some months now and have been so impressed with the level of knowledge and helpfulness, that decided to join . Quick intro: Angel is an almost 14 year old rescue (possible tabby/siamese mix, long haired) and the love of my life. We also have two other rescues, all getting up there in age (14, 15), lol. --He was diagnosed with diabetes about 2 years ago, but went into remission on Lantus within a few months. --Long story short, was treated with steroids for severe IBD in June 2016 which, as we'd been warned, brought back the diabetes. -- So he's been back on Lantus since. I began very low as per the vet -- as many on this forum have discussed, vets don't want to take chances. However, inspired by this (and other) groups (and I fully understand that you only give 'advice' NOT expert opinion, and it is entirely up to me as to whether I decide to follow that advice or not ;-)) I am now trying the Start Low Go Slow protocol. I began it in a somewhat haphazard way, but am trying to fine tune it more and more. I keep very careful records and will post them once I figure out where to do so here. -- My mom and family are in India, and I spend summer etc with them and we also travel a lot, so I'm trying very hard to get Angel into remission once again. May or may not happen, I know...but am trying so so so hard! This last winter break we took a road trip with all three kitties so we could travel AND give him his insulin + test him. He is a rescue and very skittish, so a vet tech/boarding are not good options; plus I'm guessing those would send his BG soaring. That's it for now! Thanks for reading. I do have some questions so will now head on to other forums.
