Hi everyone. So the vet called to confirm Sidney's diabetes diagnosis. His fructosamine test was in the 500 range. :-/ So the vet said he's had it a while. And he didn't have symptoms of peeing and drinking like crazy, so I feel like a crappy cat mom for not recognizing his extra hunger might have been the diabetes. I didn't see typical symptoms so I didn't think much about it being a problem. Now, I wait for Monday. He has an appointment at 11:20am where we learn how to give insulin and he gets his first shot. I admit, the waiting portion has me stressed. Especially knowing how long he's had this. I'm using the opportunity to gather a supply list (A few people have helped me with that on another thread, thank you!) and make a few purchases. I guess I'm officially a part of the community now, as is Sidney. The vet said we will start him out on the lowest dose and work upward if necessary. He will be getting Caninsulin. I still can't believe this. I'm trying to take the attitude that I am lucky to have been given the diagnosis of something that is SO treatable, and look at it as a blessing. I admit, I've done some crying, though. Last night was the FIRST night I've seen him pee more than usual. He peed three times in five and a half hours. I know he also has a UTI, but he peed a huge amount after getting back from the vet and regular amounts after. Since I'm home all day, I'd notice him peeing more, but that was the first ever time. Sigh. I'm not ready for this!
