Hello! And help! I took on a 12 year old diabetic Siamese last May. When I got her she was on 3 units twice a day. My vet wanted to do a complete full blood test when I introduced her to him. He found apart from diabetes all was good. No kidney or thyroid trouble but the tests showed 3 units was too much and he reduced her to two units. Now Izzy can't behave with being fiddled with AT ALL and has to be sedated. So it's very stressful and expensive. She was good on two units, quite energetic, ate well, no excessive drinking etc. After two months I went through the whole sedation thing again and apparently tests showed that was too high as well so she was put onto one unit. I informed my vet I wasn't doing this again as I couldn't afford it and the sedation was quite traumatic for everyone and he agreed. When I say one unit I do mean twice a day. I noticed she was a lot quieter from when I first had her, still ate well though. Since being on one unit twice a day I have now had two incidents of her being very lethargic, increased drinking, third eye lids across and hanging head over the water bowl. The first time I stuck her back up to two units without discussing it with vet and she was better within three days but after speaking to my vet about it again he said the results had showed before two units was too much but he agreed it looked like one was not enough so try 1.5. We are now experiencing anther incident of the lethargic, third eye lids across etc etc on 1.5 units. Does this sound like she is getting too much insulin or not enough? I'm getting myself so confused with it and frustrated that I'm doing all wrong.
