Hello! I have been following these forums closely ever since my cat got diagnosed with diabetes, but was not able to post until now. Hoping this one goes through... Leo is around 13 years old and was diagnosed with diabetes (BG 343) a couple of months ago after a period of weight loss (went from 4.5 kg to 3.2 kg!) and vomiting. The vet started him on Mixtard 1 unit/day and he responded well so he asked us to increase to 2 units/day. Along with this, he put Leo on Diamel syrup 1ml twice a day, which we mix into his food. Leo has been on urinary s/o diet due to his recurring cystitis issue so the vet asked us not to change his diet yet. But we have introduced one meal of wet food (also urinary). Within a week of increasing the insulin dose from 1 to 2 units/day, his home testing started to show very stable readings of around 90. We stopped the insulin but continued the Diamel and his readings have been stable between 80-95 for over a month now!! He does seem better - his coat has improved a bit, he throws up a lot less and in general is in better spirits. But his weight gain has been minimal. He had dropped quite drastically till he reached 3.2 kg, then stabilized but is still around 3.3-3.4 kg. His coat still does not look like it used to when he was healthy, despite regular brushing...After his weight loss, I can feel his ribs when I stroke him Still checking BG at home regularly and it remains stable. I wonder if the Diamel is helping stabilize the levels. I was wondering if it really does take this long for cats in remission to gain back the weight. Not sure if we should do something more or maintain status quo and wait. Has anyone else seen their cat gain back the weight after remission? How long did it take? Thanks!
