So after my first foray into monitoring bg's this weekend, I'm relieved to see that the insulin is at least doing something. The blood sampling is still hit and miss, so there are times when I feel too strapped for time or feel too bad for Santino meowing for his breakfast to include it in the routine, so I just feed and give insulin. But I did get one pre-insulin metric that was right, and it didn't seem horrible. (Yay?) It seems there is ongoing debate about the accuracy of human vs animal glucose meters. I've seen the 0.65 conversion factor - divide what the ReliOn says by 0.65. That would mean that Santino's 200's are more like 300's though, and that makes me feel a bit deflated. Also, as I've been clicking around other people's spreadsheets, I don't tend to see insulin or blood sugar values as high as Santino's. Would you all say that Santino's still in normal territory for a cat who's just started insulin? As a reminder, my vet scared me a bit with this whole insulin resistance talk.
