    There's one more thing I found very helpful, what time zone you're in. A 911 post that says "At 8:00AM he was at 60" is not nearly as informative as it could be. Just a thought.

    Hi. I guess this is where I introduce myself since apparently I'm unable to do it anywhere else. I don't have privileges to just post a thread introducing myself and can only reply. I also don't have privileges to edit my profile as suggested, which is odd. I just joined a few minutes ago.

    I had 2 lynx siamese cats. One I lost last week due to diabetes complications and had to put him down. It was horrendous----I had no support system, so I had to see him die at the vet by myself. I switched vets because my previous vet wasn't catching any of this and they contributed to his death by not giving a damn. They just wanted me to continue getting all tests done in their office and to pay constantly, which was sickening.

    I had a checkup in August for my 15 year old siamese kitty where I paid through the NOSE for vaccinations, teeth cleaning, and a checkup to catch anything weird like this. They said he was fine although he was losing weight. After my 1st cat died and I realized humans aren't told to just go to the doctor every few months for a blood test to guesstimate how much insulin to take in order to live (because they'll die that way!) I switched vets. That vet ran tests the previous vet should have done and diagnosed him with diabetes also. They also claimed the previous vet didn't really clean his teeth and they want to clean his teeth again for me. I've moved to many cities for jobs as an analyst in tech fields and Indianapolis has the absolute worst veterinarians I've ever come across in my entire life.

    Oh, also...my 15 year old cat who's been diagnosed with diabetes also has asthma. I have asthma and also have one of those Aerokat type containers, so I give him a few puffs of my Albuteral when absolutely necessary. I'm not sure if there's anything else someone could recommend. My cat, Bailey, has always had asthma and it's not a heart issue nor is it heartworm---it's asthma. He had steroid injections (not even very much---maybe 5 total over time) to stop his asthma attacks, which must be how he obtained diabetes.

    Any guidance would be appreciated. I can copy/paste this elsewhere if you'd like but I would like to have the proper permissions to do so, as well as the proper permissions to update my profile please so people don't think I'm a troll.

    Thanks,

    Deb.
