Hi All; My name is Megan, and my sweet boy Oren, roughly 11-12yr. orange creamsicle kitty was just diagnosed about 2 wks. ago. I am afraid I pissed a way a week being confused by the vets information dump and didn't get him started on insulin until this past Mon. However, in that first week, I moved him from a dry food (with occasional wet as a treat) to Fancy Feast classics completely. They also sent me home with Purina DM dry food, but i read that is still way too high in carbs, and have only been using it as 'snacks' or a very occasional treat. He started on Lantus, 1 unit 2x a day after a day of curve at the vets. Since then I have been reading A LOT and coming to look through this forum... and feel I have learned a lot, but obviously have much more to go. I haven't begun home testing, though today i did purchase a Relion Confirm meter and some test strips/lancets. My first thought is should I have gone w/ the Relion micro, which got a better score at Consumer Reports... ?
