My diabetic boy was diagnosed with stage II kidney disease, so we switched him from just low carb to two weruva flavors that were both low carb (under 5%) AND low phos. However, his insulin need greatly increased - from 2 units to 5 units BID. To be fair, he was losing some regulation before the switch (like low 200s instead of 180 preshots) which prompted us to do a full workup (labs, xrays, scans) where we found no concurrent issues. However, the diet switch pushed him into the 400s before we got him re-regulated. Is this normal with a diet switch, even if it's still low carb? He's only been regulated again for a couple days, but he's already getting back to his old happy self. As he is a Maine Coon, my vet is wondering if he has acromegaly. However, he was regulated at 2 units before - which made me think we could rule it out. Do they develop acromegaly after regulation? I would greatly appreciate any thoughts. I suppose I might need to post this in the acro section, but I wanted to hear info on the diet change, too. Thank you so much!
