Hello, I just wanted to introduce ourselves - I'm Anne and my sugarcat is McGee. He was diagnosed on 7/31/20 during pre-anesthetic blood work for a dental. His BG test was high (more than could be attributed to stress) so they also tested his urine and found sugar, which was the basis for his diagnosis. He was sent home with Lantus to give 1 unit BID. I gave his first dose in the evening of 8/1 (the following night). I joined this group right away and started reading and bought a meter (CVS Advanced human meter) the next day (yesterday) and did his first test PMPS. It was 55, so I fed him and withheld the shot (then found out I should have not fed, waited, and retested). I tested about an hour later and it was 61. At the recommendations of some very helpful people in the FB group, I did not dose him last night. I emailed his vet (his regular vet, not the vet who was doing his dental and made the diagnosis) and gave her McGee's numbers and she advised to not dose until further notice and she is having me take his BG readings throughout the day today to give her some baseline numbers. So far his AM reading was 68 and two hours after breakfast was 75. I think I have successfully set up his spreadsheet and the link should be at the bottom of my signature. I have made some notes there as well. I will keep it updated and see what that vet says after his tests today. Seems to me his numbers are pretty normal, maybe he isn't a sugarcat after all? Thank you for this wonderful group and the information and support I have already received just in the 72 hours since his diagnosis!
