Hi everyone! I'm Melanie and our little boy, Sisko, was just diagnosed on Friday with diabetes. I'm in Ontario, Canada, and according to his bloodwork, his glucose was at 26 at the time of testing on Thursday night. Since Friday's diagnosis I've been trying to read everything I can get my hands on surrounding feline diabetes and when we had the consult with our vet yesterday, felt comfortable with the route she has prescribed. We've switched to Purina D/M for both our cats and are waiting to see how our little girl does on it. They were both on Hill's Z/D as she was diagnosed with idiopathic intestinal muscular hypertrophy 2 years ago. The Z/D cured her illness, but as we don't know the initial cause, we're unsure how the D/M will take. Both kids are 11 years old (they're a brother/sister duo). He started his first insulin dose last night and is on Lantus. As he is used to free-range feeding my biggest concern at the moment is the potential for scarf & barf, as we're giving him a much larger serving of food than he usually receives at one time. I'm happy to have found this board and am looking forward to getting to know everyone here! We will be doing glucose testing on Thursday (the vet only wants to see the 6-hour mark and the pre-shot numbers) so wish me luck for that first home test!
