    My 20 year old DSH neutered male Java, who is a terrific cat, was diagnosed in early Oct. I have four months of data on notebook paper - date, time, BG, dose, notes, and vitamins. Java ended up in the vet emergency room for 36 hrs. with a BG of 36 after the first two days of his vet-prescribed insulin regimen back in Oct. I've been tracking everything ever since, but I don't feel like I have a handle on any of it, not really. I was at his vet for the 4th or 5th time yesterday asking for help. I came home not feeling like I'd gotten any and started Googling. I could kick myself for not doing this back in Oct. because I found this website right away.

    I'm trying to work with your spreadsheet template, since I have 4 months of data. I didn't know that I should do a proper glucose curve, though I probably could produce several from historical data, and am tracking Java closely today. He's very reactive, too many spikes high, and drops low, possibly/probably because I'm only dosing when he goes high? I look forward to learning more here and getting a better handle on it. My name's Lois.

    Welcome Lois and Java! We can help. It's great that you're logging data and testing BG at home. Please repost on the main health forum with the following info:
    • what insulin you use and what dose
    • what glucose meter you use
    • what type of food Java eats
    • any other health issues Java has or meds he's on.

    You need to go to the "Share" icon at the top right of the spreadsheet, select it and change it to "Anyone with the link can view" Then people will be able to see your spreadsheet. :bighug:
