I hate the rollercoasters of life especially when my precious Bailey is riding that coaster. When she was diagnosed as diabetic I was forced to hold off giving her insulin because she was also diagnosed as being anemic with clotting issues as well. The vet said we couldn't start the insulin because you don't want to be sticking a cat with needles when her blood is not clotting as it should. Prednisolone b.i.d. and Vitamin K b.i.d. for 2 weeks allowed me to finally start the insulin. I was able to stop the Vitamin K and go down to once a day on the Prednisolone. Saturday I did her first Blood Glucose Curve and have been getting really good at checking Bailey's BG before each Insulin dose.Things were looking up and now it looks like we are back to square 1. Her CBC recheck yesterday showed her platelets were way down again (as well as "clumping"?). Luckily she is not showing any bruising at her injection sites so I am able to continue with her Insulin. I have to keep a close watch though. If I see bruising I have to stop the Insulin. I had to go back to twice a day on the Prednisolone. Nothing on the Vitamin K as of yet. The hardest part of this is that I have to stop checking her BG at home until her platelet count comes back up again. The least amount of needles the better. What is really scaring me though is that the results of her Glucose Curve have proven that her Insulin dose needs to be increased and I can't watch her numbers and see how low her glucose goes! I will be watching her like a hawk when I am home. I don't want her to go into a HYPO situation! When I am at work I have to rely on my elderly parents to keep an eye on her. I will be calling home every chance I get. I finally got copies of her labs. I see that there is a page on the SS for lab results and I will try my best to figure out what to put where. My Vet's lab "ranges" are different than what is on the SS. I will figure something out so the "Pros" (aka. more experienced CGs) on this forum might be able to give me some insight. Ok let's hope there are no more big hills on this rollercoaster! Thanks in advance for any words of encouragement. All is greatly appreciated.
