Thanks for reading me! Anyway: 14 year old female got diagnosed with diabetes last week. Was brought in because of the usual increased water intake and urination. I won't go into the costs of everything involved because I'm sure everyone is aware of the upfront costs of all testing and new food, etc. It was humbling and stung quite a bit. But..on to the important part - "Jet" would NOT eat the prescribed food. I immediately took her off her normal dry food (which she loved; she was a "grazer") and ONLY put down the prescription wet food. She did not touch it, and I did not leave it down for her to graze, as I am intent on changing that eating behavior. I of course did not administer her injection since she hadn't eaten. This went on for a few days. No eating, and no injections. I went back to her fave wet food (Fancy Feast, and oven roast turkey), but she refused. I of course was concerned, so I left out some food (wet) when I left for work; she did eat some, but not nearly enough. Other than the non-eating, she seemed fine. Over this past weekend, I noticed changes - water consumption started to normalize and same with urination. Appetite came back and she ate well yesterday. However, I did not inject. Today...morning, ate well (all wet - tuna and home-prepared chicken - NO MORE dry food!), and did not inject. Urination is fine, water intake fine, appetite fine, attitude fine, everything good and VERY normal. Here's the problem I am feeling - I tried to inject a couple times (3 units Lantus x 2/day), but her squirming and non-compliance just broke my heart (I know..I know..) and I backed off. I believe the reason I backed off is directly related to the fact that she seems good again. All the problems of the previous 2 weeks seem to have stopped. If she would have started to plummet, I would have brought her right back in, BUT she seems to be absolutely normal again and happy. Here's my question - COULD IT BE that my immediate changing of her diet (NO NO NO more dry food - all HIGH PROTEIN wet food! NO MORE GRAZING!) backed the diabetes off? I KNOW that can happen in humans, so I'm thinking ... maybe?? I'm also going to admit, I don't really trust vets. I've been drained dry by a vet in the past, and it somewhat disappointed me that this vet did prescribe the DM dry (as well as canned wet) even tho the dry is apparently garbage (from what I've read in the past week). Could it be she is mis-diagnosed? Can that apparent diabetes go into remission that quickly from an immediate diet change in cats? She is going back in today for another look. I fully expect the vet to NOT appreciate my not administering the prescribed food and the shots. As you can all imagine and have experienced I'm sure, it's been a very frustrating, stressful, and confusing week. Any thoughts on that idea of diet change = BG stabilization???
