    Dagron's numbers have always been all over the place. I still have not been able to do a curve that I think accurately reflects anything. However, he has fallen into a pattern of having a really low number (usually <100), in which I don't shoot, then 12 hours later a high number (usually in the 300s/400s). I will reduce his dose by .25U, and he will gradually drop back down until he is at a low number and we start all over again.

    My theory is that he no longer needs insulin and this is his body trying to adjust to that. It seems to be no more than 72hrs between low numbers at this point, so I think he could be OTJ in as little as a month. So I have two questions: is this what it looks like when cats go OTJ? And with this pattern, will the numbers level out a bit as we approach 0? If not, how do I determine dose when SLGS recommends dropping to 0 but he still has numbers over 200?

    This forum does not get much "traffic" You would be best posting this question in the Lantus forum.

    From your spreadsheet it does not appear that Dagron is nearing remission at this point. There is far too much of a spread from the highs and lows. You may need to find a lower dose where you are able to consistently give both AM and PM shots. But best to pose this question on the Lantus forum and get feedback on there. :bighug:
