Ok, big one out of the way. Feel much better. Took Napoleon to a new vet today that has come highly recommended. They are big on raw feeding, homeopathics, etc. He had blood work done, they are going to call me with that. They have the Alpha Trak and their meter read 351, mine read 287. We are bumping his insulin to 2 U for now because of the higher than we thought numbers. I use a Freestyle Freedom Lite monitor, I didn't think that there would be such a big difference. They were highly impressed with my spreadsheet All thanks to you guys! Is the Alpha Trak worth investing in? Does anyone else use this? I read before when someone did a comparison that there was not much of a difference :?: Maybe they just got a smaller blood sample on mine than the Alpha Trak - I know this can make a difference. I will continue to update with a daily reading. Hopefully this is the beginning of his recovery!
