Type 1 diabetic myself since 1999, I feel barely able to manage myself most days, so when I started noticing signs in our little monster, Yoshi, I changed his food ASAP, then got him into the vet. He had previously been on the Urinary SO formula for cystitis, but we've switched to Blue Buffalo wet food in order to limit carbs as much as possible (all flavors ok except Turkey, apparently, as they both turn their noses up at it). Vet is fine with that. Yoshi's blood sugar was 381 when diagnosed and he's started on 1 unit vetsulin twice a day until we get his blood sugar curve figured out. He's already gained a bit of weight back just in the past couple days he's been on the better food and I've noticed he's not drinking like he'll never see water again.
