Hello Sam's now been on Tresiba two months as of July 13th. I couldn't be happier with his progress! After six months of scuba diving to sky diving bounces on Levemir I was feeling rather hopeless... and Sam wasn't feeling well, period. After six weeks on Tresiba, Sam was regulated! Yay! It probably can't be considered tight regulation; I'm using an AlphaTrak to monitor him, and numbers under 100 worry me a bit since there's less cushion to the take action number. There's been a couple of readings above 150 (the AT2's normal BS upper limit) but every number has been in the blues (or greens!). I'm a bit ashamed to admit that midday testing has gone to the wayside. The extreme heat has affected my health, and Sam and I both are doing our best just to make it through each day. Next week the AC guys are coming, and that should help. Even with the high indoor temps and humidity, though, Sam's numbers have been nice. He's even started playing a bit again. Last night he spent a good fifteen minutes attacking my Comfy Sack. And when I dared peek my head over the edge – that got attacked too I find I want to preachify on the glories of Tresiba, but will limit myself strictly to Sam's progress updates. I think Tresiba may end up being a useful insulin for other cats, but there's simply not enough information right now to be able to casually recommend it. Most parents of newly diagnosed sugar kitties need the structure of the protocols created for the other insulins. For the near future, Tresiba will likely be considered a last resort for cats that are simply not responding favorably to other insulins. Since there's so little documentation on its use in felines, veterinarians have very little reason to consider it. In my area, Boehringer Ingelheim is heavily marketing Prozinc. Calling around, it was a bit sad how few local vets were even familiar with Lantus. I suppose I was lucky, in that my vet trusted my independent research on Tresiba. Either that, or he figured Sammi was doomed regardless... It would be interesting to see how well a cat can do on Tresiba following true Tight Regulation protocol. I'm once again hopeful that Sam might one day go into remission, but I know his chances are reduced because of my personalized dosing strategy. That's okay with me, since he's currently both happy and healthy and I know I'm doing the best that I'm capable of. On a more personal Sammi note: I finally found a slicker brush he'll tolerate. More than that, he loves it! We now have happy-purr grooming time. Sam cleans his shoulders and chest, and he says Momma is in charge of brushing everything else. So I run the damp paper towel along his flank, brush brush brush in short, light strokes, and everything is perfect in Sammi's world. ...And it only took seven years to find a brush that's acceptable. I really, really love this cat!
