I joined FDMB when my cat was first diagnosed in March 2014. I was very fortunate that a quick change of diet from dry to wet food took her OTJ very quickly. I was mostly a lurker then but learned so much from all of you. Unfortunately Bama was put back on insulin in September 2015 after showing classic diabetes symptoms again. Only a few days of insulin she ended up in the kitty hospital for pancreatitis. As her pancreatitis symptoms cleared her bg was starting to normalize but was was still a bit higher than I'd like. Then her numbers went wonky in December! I got a new bottle of insulin to see if it was the insulin or Bama that was having trouble... it was Bama. Her most recent blood tests are showing a loss of kidney function which is what brings me here today. I will be making a post in the main forum later today with more information in the hopes of deciding what forms of treatment to pursue. I have also been dealing with health problems of my own for the past few months so I haven't been able to focus on Bama's troubles as much as I would like. For several weeks my husband was doing all of the testing and injections and while he has been a big help we realized there was quite a difference in how we measured and administered doses. This time around I haven't even been lurking on the forums unless I had a specific question. Now that my health issues are improving I'm hoping to help Bama improve hers as well.
