I acquired Noel, a 15 pound orange tabby from my mother when he was diagnosed with diabetes around Christmas. She was not able to physically or financially take care of him as well as I could, and I had just recently lost my senior cat so I was able to help. He had lived in my household once before when he was younger and about ate me out of house and home- now it makes sense. When I bought him to live with me he was on 3 units of vetsulin twice a day and eating half wet half dry diet of the "prescription" vet food. I did a lot of research and came across a food by a company called Young Again. Has anyone else heard of? Their claim to fame is that it is Zero carb dry cat food with just the right amounts of protein and nutrients and added moisture to help like a can diet. I also bought an at home glucose testing kit from Amazon made specifically for pets called Pettest by Advocate. I had read that human testing kits can be off and not as reliable and being an online deal this kit was very reasonable and came with everything you need in a nice little case. After putting him strictly on the new food with an automatic timer and closely monitoring him, within ONE WEEK he no longer needed regular insulin shots! I couldn't believe it myself but took him to the vet for a full day glucose curve and they confirmed- I left the food info with them to pass info on. He has always been a hoarder and acted starved no matter how much food got- their website says you have to give it freely meaning leave the bowl full and they will only eat what's needed- again, I was skelptical because that was not his way- but after a few days the automatic timer which was a quarter cup twice a day was leaving his bowl full- he was not eating it all and even walking away and coming back frequently but little bites at a time- just what they said he would. Every once in a while he will get into my dogs food or our food that has fallen on floor or whatever, and if after his sugar is a little high I have given him a small amount of insulin to compensate- so I still have it handy just in case, but as of 2 months now he has only had a few shots- so I would consider that remission. This may not work for everyone, but I thought worth sharing.
