Hi Everyone, my "first child" Jai was diagnosed with Diabetes Friday. At her annual check-up we mentioned concerning symptoms to her vet (frequent drinking/urinating and weight loss). Turns out her glucose was "over 500". Jai was put on 2U PZI BID and then scheduled to go back in one week (next friday) for a glucose curve. The Vet hardly gave us any information, hardly even explained how to give an insulin shot, just sent us off with expensive food/meds/tests. Jai's other tests (blood/urine) came back pretty okay except for "some ketones" in her urine (which was totally glossed over). Now that I have spent 48 hours reading the whole internet, I feel both more informed and yet more stressed/anxious about everything. My background involves some working with mice (I do pharmacology research) which I think has helped the insulin injections go very smooth so far and Jai loves the DM Pro plan wet & dry food. How awful was it that my vet didn't recommend glucose testing? I purchased an AlphaTrak2 online (mostly to be able to compare to vet's numbers), so it'll arrive soon and will start doing frequent readings when it does. My Vet never mentioned I should track glucose at all! Should she have? Is this a sign of negligence or just not expecting people to want to diligently track insulin response? I also worry she did it just to get me in to do glucose curves (we have one scheduled for next week). I have my PhD in pharmacology - so PK is kinda my thing and I might be a bit biased that this wasn't a good thing to omit. Jai has already tapered on her excessive drinking and urinating, so I'm worried she'll dip too low without me having the proper equipment to check on her. I've been waking the poor thing up from her naps about every 15m if she starts sleeping too deeply. I'll get my signature set up, but for now she's 10.8 lbs, DOB 7/22/2007 (11 yrs old), Glucose at Dx on 3/2/18 +500 (48 hours ago). On 2U PZI BID. Pro Plan DM wet & dry food.
