Kitty's transition to canned food has been slow. He is eating mostly Innova EVO dry with Medi-Cal Preventive canned mixed in. If I give him 1/4 can mixed with EVO dry he throws up. He can take about 1/8 can mixed with EVO dry.

Update 06/20 -- I have felt that over last week or so Kitty's numbers have been higher with Medi-Cal Preventive so I am in search of another canned food now...maybe Fancy Feast. I dont like the sweet stuff in Wellness.

Update 06/24 -- Kitty is now eating Fancy Feast Liver and Chicken.

Adding 1-2 tbsp Wellness to the Fancy Feast, brought lower BG numbers but his coat was spiked and he stayed in the room by himself. Switching back to FF made the coat soft and he was more himself..even slept with me for a while.


Kitty's hometests have been very difficult. I sometimes prick 5-7 times and work at it for 20 minutes. I need to test because it is a PS test and I dont want to give him the shot without the test. Hopefully we will overcome this.

Update 06/20 -- Hometests are getting easier. It usually takes 1-2 pricks to get blood. Now if only he will stay still long enough for me to sip it up.


Negative for ketones at DX;

2003 - had surgery for bladder stone.

2004 - I131 fo/r hyperT. Total T4 now below normal range though NOT symptomatic of hypoT.

Location - Toronto, Ontario. Canada.


BD Logic meter for hometesting

BD 3/10cc 5/16" 31 gauge needles with half unit markings.
