    Hi, my name is Kim. I have been had cats in my house my entire life. This is the first time that I have had to deal with a chronic illness in one of my cats. A couple months ago I had to euthanize my 16 yr old female tuxedo cat due to kidney failure. Yesterday, I got a call from the vet that my 14 yr old male had diabetes. I have been waiting since yesterday morning for the vet's office to call me back and tell me what I have to do, so I have been reading everything I can find on feline diabetes. I am very familiar with Type 1 diabetes in humans, as my father died a few years ago while undergoing a kidney/pancreas transplant.

    Welcome! We can help you get your kitty on track. Once you have more info from your vet post all your questions on the main health forum where more people will see them. :)
