Hi Everyone, My cat was newly diagnosed. Just wondering how long it should take to see ANY response to the insulin? We just started treatment yesterday. Giving 1 unit of Lantus every 12 hours to start. I've only given two doses so far, but there was no change from the pre-dose bg to the +6 nadir after first dose. Is this normal...hoping he is lower when I check him again in 6 hours. Just dosed him again (2nd dose ever). His pre-dose BG was 22 using an AlphaTrak. He seems to just be staying in that 22-24 range...no response yet. I really want to see *some* kind of response. He's lost a lot of weight and it pains me to think he is basically starving every day. Also, un-related. I believe my vet said *not* to dose my cat if his BG is 15 or less at the pre-check...that seems totally wrong based on everything I've read here and elsewhere. 15 is way too high (ever), am I right? Thanks...lots of questions.
