Hello everyone. My name is Maria and my cat Choco was recently diagnosed with diabetes. Choco was a 22lb medium haired black kitty and now he's down to 17lbs. I know that is a much healthier weight but I am now feeling his spine and that's not good. At the vets office last week, his blood sugar reading was in the mid 300's. I just started testing him myself yesterday and so far have only had to give him one shot of insulin (Lantus) because he was at 254. This morning and also tonight he was at 245 so I did not give him any insulin because I was told not to give him any unless he was over 250. He didn't really have an appetite tonight although when I first put his can of food out he was licking at it. I force fed him about a syringe full and then he ate a piece of turkey lunch meat. I am concerned about him because he is just acting very "blah". He is just kind of laying around and although he is fine to get up and walk (he's not wobbly), he doesn't really seem too interested in doing much more than laying down. I can tell he does not feel good by the look in his eyes. I did take his sugar level again a half hour after the first time I took it and he had that little bit to eat and the reading was 240. I need to do the curve test one day this weekend so any advice on what I should be doing would be great! I also picked up some keytone strips tonight (after going to six different stores;O) so I guess when I can catch him urinating then I can test those as well. I'm really tired, stressed, a little confused and a lot worried about Choco. Update: I just checked his blood again (this is 3 hours since the first test at 7:15) and his number is now 229. I'm not sure if that's a good or bad thing.
