Hi All, First off, this is my first time posting but have been pouring over posts and comments since the diagnosis and thank you for all the guidance I've taken away thus far. This month has been a doozy. To get into it - Keller, my 8yr Old Tabby is recovery in the hospital from his 2nd bout of DKA since being diagnosed last month. In mid April, I brought my kitties into their primary vet to get tested for a URI since they were both exhibiting some mild sneezing and Keller was diagnosed as a diabetic the following day (Glucose reading of 520 at vet). My vet prescribed starting with a diet change and holding off on insulin until his next glucose reading in 3 weeks time, unfortunately, Keller went into DKA three days later and spent five days in the hospital with the underlying diagnosis of pancreatitis. At home treatment: 1U of Lantus twice Daily, Alpha Trk 2 meter, DM Wet Food twice Daily, Ketodiasitx Strips ( I don't have a chart made for him yet) Out of the hospital Keller regained his appetite and energy but his glucose readings stayed consistently in the 400's and his excessive thirst and urinating remained, fortunately without any Ketones. Last week we went back to vet to get his glucose curve and he was bumped up to 3U of Lantus per day (1 in the morning and 2 in the evening), still no ketones in his urine but did have a UTI and was prescribed Clavamox. Four days later he started exhibiting disinterest in food, lethargy and signs I now know are consistent with him when he's going into DKA. Now he's entering his third day in the hospital, diagnosed once again with pancreatitis and expected to leave this afternoon. According to the hospital, this is unusual for cats to go into DKA in such a short period of time so they are checking him for other intestinal issues and/or possible food allergies as an underlying reason for the pancreatitis. I've also been asked to try to get the https://www.freestylelibre.us/system-overview/freestyle-14-day.html glucose reader that sticks to his skin like a patch but it seems to be only prescription based and not sure if it can be prescribed to animals. Here a just a few questions that I can gather right now Any advice on what could cause two DKA visits so close to each other besides a regular diabetes diagnosis? Could he be resistant Lantus? Are there specific food allergies/intestinal problems coupled with diabetes that are known to contribute to DKA? Has anyone successfully used one of these meters before? If so, how did you purchase? https://www.freestylelibre.us/system-overview/freestyle-14-day.html I'm really trying to wrap my mind around his diagnosis, the two hospital stays and how fast my seemingly healthy cat can take such a turn. Thank you for reading and I would be really grateful for any advice or guidance! - Lauren & Keller ******************************************************* More info on Keller that may or may not be relevant: Keller is an 8 yr. old 14lb (usually 16lb) orange Bengal/Tabby. He's naturally lean, very tall and not overweight. He's labeled as "fractious" at the vet but its definitely more anxiety than aggression. He was diagnosed a few years ago with hyperesthesia, a disorder that isn't super well known but is definite underlying cause of his anxiety.
