The protocol was updated in the past year to address the differences between human and pet meters at the "low end" of the scale.The protocol was tested in cats using human whole-blood glucometers. If a serum chemistry analyzer or plasma equivalent meter calibrated for felines is used, the measurements at the low end of the range need to be adjusted and are 30% to 40% higher. So a 50 human became a 68 on an AT meter (35% was added). It is primarily for TR followers to determine the appropriateness of reducing dosage per the protocol.

I went to another vet for a 2nd opinion, and the new vet absolutely saved him with the steroids -- but, as she had warned, his diabetes returned. Since then he's been steadily putting on weight, and has been a healthy 9.1 to 9.3 lb for the past three months. Since he's a picky eater, I've been free-feeding and very grateful for ANY food he gets in! He's recently lost a tiny bit of weight, so I'm happy if he eats a bit more than he normally would. I'd guess 9.3 or so is his perfect weight. He's a biggish cat. **@+7 1/2 my first reading was a bit weird as didn't get enough blood so added some in, and got a reading of 73 (WOAH); so tested again and got the reading of 117, which I'm guessing is more accurate.

(2) He was not hungry after AMPS shot; ate only a tsp FF (should have given him less 2 hrs ago?). He's always been a grazer, so keeping his food intake monitored is going to be a bit of a challenge. Also, I need to be out for 5 hrs this evening post-nadir, so will need to leave a little food out, although no way of knowing which of 3 kitties eats what :(.
