Hi folks, my name is Carolyn, and my cat Martian has just been diagnosed with diabetes. He's nearly 15 years old and otherwise healthy. He has high glucose but no ketones in his urine. We live in Victoria Australia, and I'd be particularly keen to link up with other Aussies here. We will be starting on insulin next week and I'm very keen to switch to a high protein low carb diet before we do, since from what I've read that's better than waiting in terms of figuring out dosage and reducing the possibility of hypoglycaemia. But Australian pet food brands and labelling are quite different to the US and I'm having trouble figuring out what to do. My vets don't have a lot of experience with diabetic cats, so the more info I have the better. (I will post this stuff to the relevant boards too).
