I am again posting after quite a while! Have been lurking and trying to learn! @Wendy&Neko 's recent reference to an old condo on Carb Sensitivity raised a lot of questions/doubts in my mind and I was hoping to get some clarity here. In post #12 of the above condo, Jill (& Alex) says that feeding slightly higher carbs "allowed me to get more insulin into the cat. That slightly higher dose was just enough to flatten the curve... get rid of the higher numbers on both ends of the cycle... without kitty bottoming out. Another bonus was it made for fewer failed reductions." I understand "feeding the curve" to some extent - feeding slightly higher carbs before onset to kitties who have a tendency to dive thereby reducing the drop and potentially reducing the bounce. Is that what Jill meant by flattening the curve and getting rid of higher numbers on both ends of the cycle? - Will this work for newly diabetic/yet unregulated and really really bouncy cats like Bandit whose numbers are still all over the place? - I presume one feeds higher carbs before onset but zero carbs after nadir? - Does one feed higher carbs at the beginning of bounce cycles too? Bandit was 378 this morning and feeding her higher carbs would only take her higher - especially with the later onset of Levemir? Bandit is on Young Again Zero Mature (< 1% carbs) and I had introduced some Dr. Elsey's Chicken (~5% carbs) but her numbers began to trend higher. I thought it was the higher carb food but taking it out also didn't bring her numbers back down. Worse, it seemed like the insulin was having no effect on her PS numbers! Anyway, we are now on Day 5 of our switch to Levemir and I think she needs an increase in her dose. I really hope she flattens out with Levemir in due course.
