My cat was just diagnosed with diabetes Dec 17th as well as a secondary issue with swollen face. She was given Convena, which had been helping with the swollen face/eye, but now it seems to be coming back. I have a follow up appt to see vet on Tuesday for an insulin demo. She is between 15 and 16 and vet is suggesting CT scan as he believes there is a secondary issue at work. I think he suspects nasal cancer. I can't afford to do the CT scan, and am hoping the swelling on one side of her face - the bridge of her nose, is something else. A wonderful woman, Jennifer, came by yesterday and showed me how to home test. She got a reading of 218. Today I got a reading of 250. Jennifer also saw how my girl has difficulty breathing at times, some open mouth breathing and her eyes look kinda glazed, especially on the one side which is swollen. I'm trying to arm myself with questions for the vet and drug/antibiotic/ testing alternatives, which I'm trying to be smart and cost conscious about as well... I'm uploading her blood work - if anyone has any insight into this that would be great as well.. Appreciate any help you can offer... Many thanks!
