Hi all, I posted this in the intro thread and it was suggested that I put it in the main health forum instead. So applogies if this is incorrect. Still figuring things out. Hi all, Grateful to have found this forum. I've been reading it for a while but decided to join today. My at Naps was diagnosed with Diabetes on November 11th. Since then its been a bit of a stressful journey. He's currently on 5 unites of Lantus 2x a day and eating a high protein diet. After having him stay at the vet a few times for glucose curves the vet and I decided to have him tested at home. So I got a glucose meter and supplies and did a curve at home. It did not go well. His first reading was 325 (after his first meal before insulin). After his morning does of insulin his glucose number went up, not down. It continued to go up throughout (though never above 400) the day until 4pm when it started to go down. By the evening it was back to 325 but went up again two hours after his evening insulin dose. But intersetingly he didn't have a lot of symptoms. Really for the past week he hasn't been drinking excessively or uniating a lot. It all seems average. He's got a good appetite (I feed him the purina DM wet food). His name suites him, he's a good napper and has been snoozing away the days. But also has energy. He was watching and batting at the birds on the fire escape (through the window). Today I took him to the vet for a 6 hour glucose test (so 6 hours after his morning insulin) his number was 416. I know its probably this high because of the stress of going to the vet. But at the same time Sunday when I did it at home it was 356. I'm looking for guidance on reading and resources about how insulin might be working and why after his doses his glucose numbers might be going up. Is there a good thread to go to to get some insights? Thank you all so much!
