Hello all. It's been a while, but between a new job and managing Bailey, my free time is pretty limited (and, to be honest, I've been trying to manage him on my own after having some rough starts with help from others). But his curve from yesterday really makes me wonder if my instincts have been right lately. The SS 2015 link in my signature is updated, so you'll see what I mean. Basically, he started out around 400 and then spent the entire day in the low to mid 300s. (And just to be clear, there's absolutely no way we had a fur shot. I've been shooting long enough now that I can tell when that happens.) Then in the evening, he got down in the 100s finally, but this morning he's back even higher 400s. I'm giving him a break with testing today but will do +5 and +7 tests just to see what's going on. Could he be getting wacky numbers because I'm changing his food? He really loves the Wellness grain free chicken so I'm inclined to be patient with it and keep him on it until I can do another curve. With my work schedule it's impossible to test during the week so it would be Saturday again. He's also on a higher dose than he's ever been (2 units, up from his previous steady high dose of 1.75), but that's only because lower doses don't seem to have any effect on him at all anymore. Basically, I'm kind of getting at the end of my rope with all this. In December things seemed to get getting a little better, we'd have pre shots in the 100 and 200 range, but then I took him to the vet and he rocketed up again and we've pretty much seen nothing but pre shots in the 300s and 400s since then. Adding to this frustration is that I feel pretty sure he's having kidney problems (hence the switch to Wellness food since it's lower in phosphorous) but because of how high his sugar jumps, I'm reluctant to take him to the vet. It's choosing between two evils basically and I'm getting really worn out trying to manage this stuff lately. I'm even tearing up right now as I type. On the positive side, his coat is healthy and he's grooming himself and purring and cuddly with me sometimes. He has his energetic and playful moments but he also has his sleepy times. He seems like his usual self for the most part. But I wonder if I'm not just looking too hard for that kind of stuff to make myself feel better through all this. Sorry for rambling on and being so wordy. I swear, I really just wanted to post about yesterday's curve! lol There's not really anyone else in my life I can talk this stuff through with though so as always, I appreciate y'alls help.
