Hi All, My guy Biggs just got diagnosed last week. It took me about a week to recover and get mentally prepared for what's next. He's been losing weight and drinking lots of water, though he's always been pretty obsessed with water so I didn't pick up on it right away. I'm going to the vet this afternoon to learn about shots and testing glucose at home, and I'm still a bit uneasy. I know things will get better and this group has already helped me so much. I was pleasantly surprised when my vet essentially confirmed what I was reading here: - change diet to wet food - start on Lantus 2 units 2x/day (that seems a bit high? But he's a 13 lb cat and his diagnosis number was 435) - test glucose at home She also wants me to bring Biggs in for a glucose curve in a few weeks, but I'm hesitating on that since I know that will really break the bank. I'm relieved to have found this group, and one day I hope to pay it forward.
