I've been posting in the main forum for the past 3 weeks because Zoey had a really bad episode and almost died. While we were gone over Christmas, she stopped eating and drinking and became severely dehydrated. A friend was taking care of her, testing her, and giving her insulin. He told me she wasn't eating much, and then a day later, he said she was very sick. I called my vet (who has a mobile service) and he came and got her. It took us an extra day to get home because of weather and bad roads. He had her for 3 days and gave her IV fluids. He checked her blood and told me she was in renal failure. Her creatinine, BUN, and phosphorus were extremely high. After we got back, I took her to another clinic and they kept her for a week. She had a bladder infection, inflamed pancreas, and dehydration. She was on diuresis for 4 days, antibiotic, phosphorus binder, and anti nausea medication. By the 5th day, her blood levels were down to almost normal, so she came home. A week later, she went in for tests, and all was good! Amazingly, she has bounced back from the brink of death! Now to the diabetes part... During this time, she was on high carb kidney support food, both wet and dry. She was not eating much, so whatever she wanted, she got. Now I've got her on lower carb food again - Hill's WD food which is low in phosphorus (per vet's advice), and some Fancy Feast. The problem is I cannot get her regulated. For the past 3 weeks she has been extremely high. My glucometer doesn't go above 600, it just says HI. The vet increased her dose to 2 units, but that was while she was still on high carb food. As you can see by her spreadsheet, she went down as low as 40 while on 2 units. Then I had to give her some high carb food to bring her back up. I have cut her back to 1.6, but she is bouncing. Do you have any suggestions, or should I just keep her at 1.6 for a while to see if she calms back down? She is back to eating well, peeing normally (not bricks in the cat box), pooping well, and she is very snuggly! She is even able to jump up on the couch again. I'm so happy she got over the kidney issue. She is now worth over $300 per pound! Luckily she is a small kitty!
