    IMG_0314.JPG But not in a good way right now...diagnosed with diabetes and started on insulin yesterday. She's 10 and a half and had been losing weight. Although I'm sad she has this illness, I am relieved it is a condition that can be managed. I'm grateful for this forum!

    Welcome.
    If you have any question please post in the Health forum
    http://www.felinediabetes.com/FDMB/forums/feline-health-the-main-forum.28/

    Most of us here test our cat's blood glucose at home using a human meter. We test before each shot and periodically between shots. We record our reading and other info in a spreadsheet. See:

    What are you feeding? A low-carb canned is best. No reason for a prescription food. Here is a list of commercial low-carb canned

    Thank you! I am a seasoned nurse but feel like a total newbie when it comes to feline diabetes. I am sure that Lucy and I (and her sister,Daisy) will benefit from everyone's experience.
