Yesterday Today’s numbers, especially first thing his morning, have been terrible and terrifying. I did give him the R today, but I obviously didn’t get that tiny dose right. I just returned from the vet about an hour ago. I think I finally found a vet who knows the current 21st century way of treating feline diabetes. It ended up being a very expensive visit, but we not only had all blood done, but also x-rays to see if anything was apparent. Unfortunately, it looks like Champ has heart disease and the vet thinks there’s fluid building up in one of his lungs, possibly pneumonia. No infection can be located anywhere except possibly in the lungs. He has scoliosis in his back so I’m to continue with the Adequan. He has mild hypertension, but, because medication for that could make his kidneys even worse, she wants to check his blood pressure in a week to confirm its high. If needs to go on blood pressure meds, we may start a phosphorus binder to help the kidneys. The cause of the astronomically high glucose levels can only be guessed at, but may be due to the stress his body is undergoing with all his health problem. She said the only thing she can recommend is continuing the antibiotics for another few days and, since I have so much experience in dosing his insulin, increasing his insulin until we see some action. I’m going to use the R every cycle if it’s needed. I need his numbers to improve ASAP!!!
