Hi there, My cat is not newly diagnosed, but the vets cannot figure out what is going on with him. His diabetes has never really been successfully regulated for any length of time it appears. We adopted him from a humane society and are slowly learning his issues. We have him on Lantus and do the blood glucose curves at home. He has sudden drops in blood glucose meaning going from 29.2 to 22.1 to 16.1 in 4 hours as an example. another day he was 16.1 at 8 p.m. , ate ½ can of veterinarian prescribed diabetic cat food and was injected with 3 units of lantus. He was 1.9 at 9 am the next day. These are not once in a lifetime occurrences for Harry. We cannot figure out why he is dropping suddenly sometimes and not other times. On top of this he has inflammation of the intestine and suspected bowel disease. He has diarrhea, but not the really watery kind - around level 3-4 on the stool consistency chart. It is really smelly. We thought this might have something to do with the failure to control his diabetes and his weight loss. We have tried a few foods and his stool clears up for about a week and then it is back to diarrhea. I can post more, but wanted to introduce Harry the cat and myself. I'll probably just start a new thread.
