Hi all-- we have a 10 year old full bred Maine Coon, Elliot. Just diagnosed last week and his first full day of Lantus 1 until every 12 hours was Thursday. He has responded nicely, in the 200s when I decided to get a meter over the weekend. So I only have 2 days of data. I pulled all dry food, he is eating Fancy Feast classic pate twice a day, sometimes 3. His water chugging has improved immensely as well as urine output. You can tell he feels better. He was 18 lbs last year, and is currently 12.5-- vet wants him around 14ish. OK.. so human vs pet meter. Guys I am LOST. I bought the Relion Prime meter on the advice of the FB support group and that I cannot stomach 1.00/strip given how much testing I am doing. Please do not say I am a horrible cat mom- our cat is family and we recently adopted a kitten and lost him a few weeks ago to FIP. Never had a cat with FIP so needless to say I was shocked this was devastating news as I prayed for it to be a parasite or just an infection. He was in the final stages after a lot of tests to rule out the cause of his rapid breathing and anemia. He was starting to suffer and we had to let him go. He was barely 5 months old and only with us for 8 weeks. Now the news of Elliot-- I am reading researching and testing. So I asked our vet if the Relion Prime was ok to use. She says to use the AT and she has not heard of anyone having inaccurate numbers. My husband and I agree of course the vets will say use the AT, but my aim is to do curves at home and I am very scared of hypos which is why in my mind I would rather have a low reading and add 30 points, then have a high number and they keep increasing his insulin. I have read both sides of the debate. She says all their pet owners use the AT and have not had issues using the AT strips. I flat out do not know what to do. I have read what each meter does. I just need some support on how to proceed-- I have found less than 5 people who believe in the AT-- most people are using the Relion and are happy with the readings. Know that we have NOT done his first curve yet. I plan to do one here at home on day 10 of treatment and then, take him in on day 14 and let them curve him. I respect our vet, but I want to do what is best for Elliot-- the more I read, the more anxious I get about which meter to use. If you all are 100% no doubt pro AT, please tell me if you use the Free Style Lite strips and how to calibrate your meter correctly and do you have comparisons of the AT vs. Relion Prime.
