Hello! Mark is 12 years old and was diagnosed on July 8th. We took him in after noticing large amounts of urine and he had developed a tremor in his front paws. His bg when diagnosed was 414. We immediately removed dry food from his diet and started him on high protein/low carb wet food. The vet started him on 2 units of Lantus twice a day a few days later. We did our first bg test (using AlphaTrak 2) at the vet last week. His bg was 235 and that was 10 hrs after his last insulin shot. We are doing our first curve today. Before being fed and getting his insulin, his bg was 163 (12 hours after last insulin shot). We have another kitty with a chronic illness (Sylvia is 16.5 years old and has IBD, diagnosed 2.5 years ago). I've been doing a lot of research to find wet food that both cats can eat because segregating the cats and making sure they eat is really difficult and stressful on both of them (and me!). Last week, we suddenly lost our Emmy to kidney cancer. We noticed she was sick on Sunday and she was gone on Wednesday. We are reeling from the recent diagnosis and losing the 'healthy' kitty so suddenly. I am so grateful to have found this forum for info and support.
