Going into Remission so Soon?

Hamlet has only been on Lantus since the beginning of last December, and has already shown a very sharp decrease in his need for insulin.  We had to back off completely until consulting with our vet, and looking at his low point getting a little high.  Just one unit brought him back to being "within range", so we expect to have to keep a close eye on him for a while, to see if this trend continues.  Our experience with Lantus is outlined on his chart.  What we have been able to learn about Lantus and how it shoud be handled is now added to the Diabetic Cats Dietary Management FAQ called "tamingthecurve".
