    Long time lurker, first time poster.

    Luna was diagnosed at the end of January with numbers in the 600s. We noticed she was drinking a ton and was peeing more than we've ever seen, so we brought her to the vet a few days later. Vet started her on 2u of Lantus and RC Glycobalance wet, and said not to worry about home testing yet. The day of her 2 week follow-up appointment, she hypoed; stumbling and twitching. Luckily I work from home, so I was able to catch it. Vet dropped to 1u. Started home testing, but not regularly. Next follow-up appointment, she test in the 50s at the vet. Dropped down to .5 u. After that, I found this site and started testing regularly.

    After trying different dosing with our vet for the last 4 months (0.5 every 18 hours, .25 twice a day, .25 once a day), we finally got the green light to adjust as we saw fit. We started TR a few weeks ago and now have Luna eating a low carb wet food. We're starting to see some lower numbers and had a full day under 200. Hopefully with the mild success we've had recently, we can get this thing under control.

    What a cute little darling! Welcome to you Dan and Luna. I am so glad you decided to post and let us meet you both.
    You have obviously done your homework, and educated yourself to help Luna avoid further low BG events. I suggest you post on the Lantus forum about the dosing schedule and dose amount, so that the experienced members can help you going forward. They would be your best resource for helping that sweet girl get this BG stuff under better control, getting her to feeling much better, and perhaps even to remission. Wouldn't that be great?
    Best wishes going forward. :cat:

    The Lantus experienced wise women and men are fantastic, I'm sure they are going to do all they can to help you and Luna.
