Since June Freya's numbers have been pretty steady, and things have been pretty easy. She has been doing wonderfully. I have noticed her numbers kinda creeping up the past week or so. We bumped up her dose slightly, and now they numbers are going way up (bounce?). We have not been seeing these numbers since early in her diagnosis. What could cause numbers to spike like this? We recently opened a new bottle of Prozinc that we picked up from the vet a couple of months ago. Is it possible that even with a good date the bottle is bad? I would assume it was properly stored at the vet, but you never know if something happened. It doesn't have anything wrong in its appearance that is obvious though. We had been feeding her Fancy Feast Savory Centers pretty much full time (with Tiki Cat mixed in) about 2 months ago the chicken flavor was hard to find, and now we can no longer get the beef flavor either as of about 2 weeks ago. We are back on Tiki Cat chicken along with trying various other things (standard fancy feast pate chicken, chicken and beef, etc). Could these not agree with her? We have used them before, but never full time. Other recentish changes: We took her off Dasuquin around a month ago due to reading it may not be great for diabetes. I have been giving her Hyalogic Cat Hyaluronic Acid instead. From what I can tell this should be okay, right? We have been working her off prednisolone. I would think this would make her numbers better, but i am not sure why they are going up. I have noticed some hairloss on her belly, and even a little inside her back leg. Should I be worried about the steroids causing Cushings? If so, would getting her off the steroid help? I am now at 4 days between doses. Her doage is 1.25 mg. I am still worried about her spine issue, so we are going very very slowly to see how she reacts. She still takes Zobaline, and was doing very well. The past few days with higher numbers I can tell her squatting in the bathroom is not looking as great as it used to. I am assuming higher numbers are affecting her neuropathy again. She is still on Gabapentin twice a day. I recently bought fortiflora when she was having diarrhea. She has now been taking it around a week. I give her to her once a day or every other day. Seems to have worked well. Could it affect her blood sugar? Could she have an infection somewhere? She is still hungry (even moreso the past few days with the high numbers), she isn't exhibiting any off behaviors (definitely drinking more water, but again, I assume from the higher numbers). I just do not know what to lookout for, or what tests to even nhave the vet run. My first instinct is to keep upping her dose, but I want thoughts/opinions first. Should I bump up more starting tomorrow? Should I go down? We were doing so so so so well, I thought maybe she was heading towards remission. I feel so sad now. She is supposed to see the vet next month, but I can call and make an appointment sooner too. I just would like to have some ideas to bring to my vet as they have admitted they do not have a lot of experience with diabetic cats, and I want to make sure they do more than just a quick glance. I am hoping to start seeing better numbers again soon. I also think at these numbers I should test for Ketones. Any recommendations if I cannot catch her urine? I hear they have blood meters. Any recommendations? Can they be found locally? I appreciate the help.
