Hello everyone! I'm Teo from Argentina and I am new to this world of diabetic cats. My big 10 year-old cat Viamo was diagnosed with diabetes three months ago, when we started noticing signs of peripheral neuropathy. His walking has only worsened since, despite being treated with a slowly increasing dosage of Lantus insulin (two times a day, started at 1 unit each time, now 4 units each time). He has been eating Royal Canin Diabetic dry food since. (I know, more on this later.) Only recently have we bought a glucometer to test at home, and we are still getting a grip on it. We have tested him at various times of the day, (although haven't performed a complete curve spanning 12 hours) and today his glucose level was 435 mg/dL two hours after his morning shot. This seems his usual value: it has not decreased since treatement started. When I found this site I was very frustrated as I noticed there aren't knowledgeable veterinarians in the field here in Argentina. As far as I have read here, I understand that it is important to try to switch his diet to one which is wet, less carbohydrates and more protein. But I do not know how to manage the transition while keeping the insulin dosage correct. This is my main worry now. Also, the lack of professionals who can help us directly is a major burden since I feel I am taking a path where veterinarians won't follow. I arrived at this site by chance, by recommendation of someone to which it has helped a lot. Thank you in advance for the tremendous work done here.
