Remission after 6 ½ weeks on TR
Alex was 12 1/2 when she was diagnosed on 1 September 2007. I was Googling away after the initial diagnosis because I was not happy with the prognosis (shoot 2 units Caninsulin BID blindly, feed Hills Dry DM and accept that my cat would not last more then 12-24 months). I did a 180-degree turnaround in my approach to vets after I was exposed to this protocol and I found a holistic vet who, when presented with it, supported me in all aspects even though she did not know about the sliding scale option. I followed the protocol and we saw results after 2 days (tighter regulation of the blood sugar, using the box again, ability to jump, no longer lying on the floor in the middle of the passage). She had her last shot on 18 October 2007. We had a scare in early May 2008 when she registered high glucose again. After 3 days of anti-biotics she was back to self regulation again. I am now a massive advocate of raw diets for cats: all of my cats are looking better now at 15-16 years old than they did when they were 12-13 years old. I am also a massive fan of collective on-line knowledge sharing. The ideas of this protocol are spread to every corner of the world through this forum.
