I previously had a diabetic cat who was diagnosed at age 4 and was fairly well regulated for over 10 years. She developed hyperthyroidism in her last year and we just couldn't win that battle. She died 4 years ago. So... here I am again. Minnie is a 16 years old, female cat. I noticed excess drinking/urination a couple of weeks ago. Borrowed a glucometer and tested her... 375.... Took her to vet to get blood workup and check for any infection. She's healthy except for diabetes. No ketones, good kidneys, etc. She's only lost about 5% of her body weight. Down to 10.2 lbs. When I had previous kitty, Trixie, I used Humulin N with great success. Success for 10 years is pretty good. Anyway, I realize that now there are new insulins to look at since last time I researched, it was the years 2000-2001. I'm shocked at price of Lantus. Not sure if I should try Lantus or PZI. Vet has left decision up to me. We've worked well before so he trusts me. Also, what's best glucometer? Also shocked at the price of the test strips now. Sticker shock!!! Anyway, I'm adjusting her food for the next 5 days and then we will start the battle with insulin. Need advise on which insulin, cost, where to buy, glucometers, test strips. Thanks!
