My 16 year old kitty has been in diabetes remission for a few weeks and has been diagnosed with IBD. She has lost a huge amount of weight and will be put on steroids. I am panicking about her going back into diabetes and having unregulated diabetes. Has anyone dealt with steroids and diabetes? I am very scared because I have not been able to test her at home. She is on metro and her GI symptoms ate ok but she has gone from 16 pounds to 11 in a couple of months so I am positive that the vet will put her on steroids today. I absolutely love this kitty more than anything in the world. She is currently happy and more active but losing weight. Cancer has been ruled out by an ultrasound. Any guidance greatly appreciated.
