Wait don't throw me off the board yet. I have a diabetic anteater and the diabetic dog forum owner suggested this might be the place to get help since dogs are type 1 and cats or more often type 2. And no this isn't a prank this is us https://www.facebook.com/pages/Pua-Tamandua/107868115902036 Looking at steps 3 and 4 on here https://www.facebook.com/pages/Pua-Tamandua/107868115902036 does that mean I should consider Pua's blood sugar controlled if it is <300 to 100+? She is currently getting <110 lowest daily value and mid 200's lik3 237-220 highest after meal value. We are achieving this with herbal supplements with the vets blessing because we are both a bit apprehensive of using medications or insulin on her since we would be flying blind with no cases of precedent to rely on and getting blood samples from her is a difficult and stressful event. I thought she needed to be lower but if we pretend for a minute she's a cat this range is considered okay? I am using an alphatrack with freestyle strip in it set at 24. I burned through a ton of strips to figure out what setting and combo got the most accurate readings for her. Before that I thought we had her reasonably controlled due to falsely low readings. Then she started having massive blood sugar spikes due to the exercise of going on walks/hikes. She looked poisoned which is what I thought happened the first time. Figured they sprayed the park grass with something. Disorientation, shaky movements, lethargy, puking, fear. The first time our regular vet was in surgery and the stand in couldn't manage to get blood to test sugar. Do you think her numbers are low enough to make taking her for hikes safe again?
