Hopefully this will be my last noob thread, but I started her monitoring today. She was 188mg at 10:43am, about two hours after she had eaten. (she got treats with the test so I can get her used to it)[treats were Purina Pro Plan hairball remedy (26%carb)] She was 287mg at 3:33pm, about 3 1/2 hours after eating. I have her insulin but not sure if I should even bother with dosing until I get a clearer picture of her curves. She's still in the 'normal' range. She's been on wet since last Sat. with less than 1/8 cup for the week (what she picks from the boy's food and it's usually crumbs). She gets fed at 2:3am, 8am, noon, and 5pm (coincides with when I leave for work, when the bf comes home and before he goes to bed, and when I come home). We started her on the diet last Saturday. I'm going to do another week of curves to get a better picture of what her levels are, but what should I be looking at? Does she have to follow a normal curve cycle or is each cat different? I'm not seeing a reduction in her urine output, but the frequency has greatly reduced. I am also seeing her water intake drop, which may be a good or bad thing, I'm not sure. She's 12 pounds, down from 14.1 (at her highest weight in April when she had pyometra, which the uterus was a pound when removed), and she's about 12 years old. Her levels were normal before and after the surgery and has only developed this in the last three weeks. I want to be very sure before I start injecting her with insulin that this is in fact, diabetes. Any and all advice is welcome.
