Hello, We recieved our confirmation yesterday that our girl Storm has diabetes. It all started out three weeks ago with her just not acting right and having some diarrhea and a fascination with her rear. We took her in because she has had anal gland issues in the past and we just were not sure, but we knew something was off. The vet didn't find much other then her anal gland needed suppression, so they decided to do some blood work and it came back with an elevated glucose of 323. Not knowing if the elevation was for sure diabetes or the stress of being accosted at the vet, we didn't know what to do. We decided to get a second opinion and get a human glucometer and start testing. Unforntunetly, the human glucometer was showing much lower reading (150-178), so our vet thought the home readings although high, we're not high enough for insulin and ran some other test which eventually all came back negative. I wish the vet had calibrated our human machine to the one in their office so we would have known difference two weeks ago, but we went home with anitbiotics for two weeks for the bladder infection she got along with the continued fascination with her rear. We were good at giving her antibiotics, her bladder infection went away, and I kept testing her glucose, but she wasn't the same cat. I decided to go online and with all the confusion I have found on the internet about glucometers, I decided to purchase Alpha Trak and started testing two days ago and her sugar was averaging above 300. Ran to the a new vet with all my previous precious test results, my Alpha Track to get calibrated, and Storm to get more blood and urine samples. The Vet checked my Alpha Track to their glucometer and also tested her blood on their lab machine and it came back close to what the reading was in the vets office of 423, so they sent us home with Glargine and to inject 2 units after her set wet high protein can food. We took her sugar before eating and before her first injection and it was 433. We kept taking her sugar every two hours with a happiness we saw it going down very nicely. By 6 hours after her first injection she was at 157' so we went to bed and and when we woke up to take her sugar before her next feeding and injection, her sugar was 91. To make sure we were gettin a correct reading we took it again and it was 93. We honestly didn't know what to do, but since it was so low we didn't want her to get hypo, so we fed her and did not give her shot because it is so low. Amazingly enough, we didn't ask the vet what to do last night if the glucose readings are low or normal, but I know I don't want her to get too low. Of course it is Sunday and i have no one to ask anything. Im a total stress biscuit and and I'm trying to stay calm. This has been much to take in and would appreciate help or advice. PS.....we have a total of four cats. Storm is 11 years old and has a brother Xavier ( yes the Xmen series), an elder cat is 17 year old Simon, and our crazy 14 year old named BotBot. Storm is our first and only diabetic cat, so I'm having a hard time juggling the new diet for everyone, testing, and not knowing what to do. Thanks all for you patience.
