    Good Morning
    Salems ip to 5 units for insulin . Im worried . He waa a few minths ago at 2.75 now hes up to 5 ? Yes i know i stayed at 4.50 units for awhile. I didnt want to increase while it was food influenced . He has a few below 59 bgs. we had a but of trouble with salem sneaking the high carb food from the other csts ! He was sneaking into the room.
    By another cat jojo hes buddy then later he was sneaking waiting in the rooms corner behind boxes while i sat the other cats good in there . Its a empty room where my daughter moved out . Its full of boxes now . This is where im locking the other cats in while they eat .


    Why is he going up so much all of a sudden ? The sneaking the high carb food i know sure did not help us out . Any advise what im doung wrong ? What can i do ?
    i hope everyones having a great week . Im a great aunt ! My niece had her baby Sunday night ! A sweet baby boy 7 lbs 7 ozs 20 inches boy ! Hes just perfect !

    CONGRATULATIONS on the new baby!!! Always wonderful to welcome a new member to the family :)

    As for looking back...well you just can't do it. Doesn't matter how much insulin it took at one time to keep those numbers looking good, but what dose it's taking now. If you think he's still getting into the high carb foods, then that's another factor and you'll have to closely monitor because as I'm sure you know, more carbs = more insulin as his body isn't producing enough to handle those carbs. I don't believe getting into contraband/carbs causes the bg to stay elevated for very long...maybe a day...but certainly not long term...unless he's making it a habit.

    Once you're sure that he's not getting into any contraband you can watch those numbers and hopefully he'll show you that he's had enough insulin and will earn a reduction.

    Have a great day Tina!

    Congratulations on being a "Great Aunt" Tina!! :bighug::bighug::bighug:

    How is Salem's overall health and his teeth? Are his 5 p's good? Preening, purring, peeing, pooping and playing? Any chance there's an infection, that would cause a rise in BG'S?

    Hope you have a good day!! :)
