I'm a newbie! My little princess, Kobe, was just diagnosed with diabetes. She's 15.5 yo now. She was hyperthyroid at age 12.5 yo and was treated with radioactive I-131 therapy (I'm in the Hyper-T FB group). She's had borderline diabetes for awhile, trying to work with diet, but I brought her back in to get her kidneys checked and look for diabetes again, which her labs confirmed (still awaiting kidney values before proceeding/no ketones either). She drinks a lot of water and produces a ton of pee. Her weight and muscle mass has declined (around 9-10 pds). I need to touch base with the vet this week to start treatment. What is the best insulin/how to check sugars/urine at home/etc. Do I need to leave her at the vet and do the curves thing a few times? Any advice is appreciated! I have 3 cats and have made dietary changes in the past that helped us. I work shiftwork at our local hospital and am a very busy person. I need to purchase necessary equipment and get my script to get insulin. Still researching.
