Hello, My Martini is now 15 and her diabetes has come back. Both her brothers were diabetic also. We did honeymoon for quite a few years without ever starting insulin - just a diet change. After that I kept feeding FF pates, Friskies pates and occasionally other pates just for a change. I'm thinking it's her age that is not helping with the remission as pates have been the only food. We have started insulin - 1/2 unit Lantus twice a day. I think I miss a few shots as I get very nervous giving the needle, but cannot repeat just in case I did not miss. We started a curve yesterday (husband is very reluctant to do this -hates needles) and the numbers were high so I gave 1 unit of insulin last night. This morning before food, the number was higher and I gave 1 unit again. The number started coming down after that. I think she will have to be on this dose for a few weeks in order for us to see any significant changes. I will give the #'s to the vet on Monday and see what she says. Martini is also asthmatic and gets a puff every day.
