Hello! I am new to the FDMB and look forward to all that I can learn about living with feline diabetes from the members. My 12.5 year old male rescue was just diagnosed last week (2/28/17) . His blood sugar was 400 and his fructosamine was 616. Our vet put him on 1 unit of Lantus (Glargine) twice daily. The poor guy also has congestive heart failure which was diagnosed in 2013. His scripts for that are Plavix, Atenolol, Benazepril. As soon as Marbles started receiving the insulin, we could see an improvement. He has lost a lot of weight the past few months and we are finally seeing his appetite come back. So far, he's doing well with the shots. He goes back to the vet on Friday 3/10/17 for a blood sugar cycle test. I spent a few hours this past weekend reading the various threads and forums. The advise you all give and knowledge you share is just amazing. I am so very grateful to have found this site to help us through this journey.
