My cat Chachi is 9 yrs old and was diagnosed on 5/15/17. The Vet has him on 2u currently and his last curve range was between 157-204 (tested by Vet). Testing - I see on this forum many owners are testing at home. The vet has never suggested this but I'm contemplating it because I feel like I can get a better handle on things rather than wait another 3 weeks to get him tested by the vet. Are all blood sugar meters about the same? Eating - Sadly I was feeding him way too much dry food and he had gained alot of weight. Chachi has always been a "hungry cat" and enthusiastic eater so it's difficult to gauge whether it's just habit or sugar related. I cut down his dry food even before he was diagnosed and am trying to wean him completed off it (down to an occasional tablespoon). I was feeding him canned fancy feast (1/2 can morning/night) prior to starting insulin but switched to the DM diet canned/dry. Any advice on dealing with a frantic foodie cat?
