Hello I can hardly believe it's been a year since Sam started Tresiba! A year ago it seemed impossible that Sam would ever be regulated; now we're whispering behind our hands the magical "remission" word and keeping our fingers crossed. He still has a ways to go -- and he might not actually get there -- but he's currently at a .75u dose, and we never thought we'd get to this point. Yay! We switched away from the AT2 to a human meter a few months ago, although we have a vial of AT2 strips in reserve just in case. It's amazing to us how incredibly level Sam's BG#s are. I did set Sam's dose reduction number to below 60, since I have a deep suspicion that the Tresiba depot may very well be active for five, or even six days after a dose change. It's mostly a gut feeling, but it's keeping Sam safe Sam himself is doing good: very happy, very purr-y, and rolling in dust and debris every chance he gets! I've not yet been able to get a handle on his weight, however. He's getting between 211 and 247 calories a day, his latest weigh-in put him at 21.6 lbs, and I measured his sitting height from floor to the top of his shoulder at 15 inches and length from nose to base of tail at around 21 inches Maybe my math is all wrong, I just don't know... I'm going by the formula 13.5 times 15 (estimated perfect weight) plus 70 = 272.5 calories per day. I do, though, have an appointment with a new vet this upcoming Tuesday! Have my fingers crossed for this, as well lol! I'm hoping she can shed some light on this big big boy problem. Will also be discussing the rusting/graying issue with her. Right now I've figured he's getting roughly 43-45% of his calories from protein, but maybe he needs even a bit more. Otherwise Sammi is doing absolutely wonderful! I'll post lab results once I have them. Jill, I'm about at the point of trying to add raw in with Sam if he'll accept it. I was checking out the Food Fur Life website today Which reminded me that Sam's been on Tresiba for a year, and I should really let everyone know how he's been doing! But I like that the product can be added to cooked meat, since Sam loves himself some chicken (or salmon, or tuna, or tilapia... but I'm really trying to keep him to chicken). Since I can't get a current picture of Sam without him covered in what seems to be half the backyard, I'm putting up a picture of him as a kitten that I painted on a rock Oh, I remember those day fondly!
