Hi, my daughters rescued Russian Blue is our diabetic furbaby. We were diagnosed April 12th last month. He had lost 5 pounds in about 1 1/2 weeks which is what signaled to us that something was wrong. Since his diagnosis, Zeke has lost another pound. The week before last, his reading was around 326, the vet raised him from 1.5 units to 2 units and last week his reading was 354 so the vet raised him to 2.5 units and with loosing .75 pounds in a week, also told us to increase his food. I found this forum yesterday and have since realized that the vet we had been going to is crap, the phone call this morning confirmed it. We had only been going to that one because none of our cats travel well and he was closer. I now have an appt for Friday morning with the vet I normally go to. Not sure why I hadn't already went to her yet, even my mother asked me why the hell haven't I yet lol. Until then I am going to be doing some heavy reading on this forum and probably will be posting some questions soon also.
