Hello everyone. My name is Adam Flowers and my cat Mogee Pickles was just diagnosed with diabetes. Mogee is 6 years old l, weighs 18 lbs. and has been a healthy-spoiled cat his entire life. I noticed about 3 weeks ago that he was peeing and drinking more than usual. After some research, I realized he needed to go to the vet as he most likely has diabetes based on his symptoms. Mogee's first vet appointment was Friday, September 1st. His bg was tested and was 396. My vet recommended having Mogee fast and come back in to have his numbers tested again before we decided what to do. I brought Mogee back to the vet on Tuesday, August 5th after he fasted overnight. His bg was 306. My vet recommended having Mogee start on a diet for a week or two and then have his numbers tested again before deciding what route to go. My vet prescribed, and Mogee has been eating since September 13th, Royal Canin Glycobalance. He used to be free fed, now I feed him at 6:40 am and 6:40 pm. He gets, based on his weight, 3/8 cup of dry food mixed with half a can of wet Glycobalance at each meal. He has been eating it and loves it. Today, we had our final bg after trying the food for a couple weeks to see what Mogee's numbers would be. He fasted and his bg this morning was 326. Based on today's bg, we will meet with our vet tech on Tuesday September 26th and start insulin. I believe my vet will be prescribing Prozinc/PZI. Are those the same thing? My question to anyone reading this is have you have any experience or have any advice when it comes to the food my vet has recommended? My cat loves it and it seems to be working. Also, my cat is very shy and has not been around many people. Anytime anyone does come over, he hides until they leave. I do believe that his anxiety has affected his bg levels when tested at the vet. I do plan on buying a meter and testing at home. I have watched numerous videos and feel I will be able to do it. I should also mention Mogee's urine was tested and there were no ketones. I am new to all of this as I see many others are too. Mogee is my baby and many tears have been shed thus far. Any advice, help, or recommendations are always welcome. Thank you all and I am glad I am able to be a part of this group.
