Hi all, I've been reading this forum to gather real life advice and help my recently diagnosed cat, but now I need some more specific advice, and ask if anyone has seen this situation before. Quick background: Arancino has been diagnosed in July; I brought him in because he looked a bit off. It turned out that he had a UTI and elevated glucose at the vet - not extraordinary in itself, because he's so stressed out when I bring him in (even on gabapentin) that he pukes, pees and poops in his carrier. He's done very well on Lantus, and regulated very quickly to the point I was able to withdrew it 6 weeks ago, and while his glucose has been very slowly creeping up, yesterday it has spiked to 13 mmol/L (alphatrak). From his general behaviour, I suspect he has an UTI again, so I will call the vet tomorrow to see what can be done. I am in Ontario and there is a new lockdown in effect, so I am not sure what availability the vet has. Also, I'd rather not to take him in the vet's office unless absolutely necessary, as he becomes very agitated (the vet has problems restraining him) - his blood tests are so messed up they are borderline useless (I am considering in- house visits, but you know, covid). At last check, he also had very slightly elevated Spec fPL, but that may be related to his pancreas not functioning normally. My question is: both the vet and I assumed that the UTI was secondary to the diabetes; but given how quickly his glucose levels shot up yesterday, I am starting to wonder if it is not the other way round, that is, his UTI triggers the raise in BG, because his immune system is compromised and can't fight infections effectively? He's eating normally, drinking a bit more than usual, and no issues peeing; he was up for playing last night. He's had most of his teeth removed a year ago (due to FIV), so he only has his fangs left. I initially thought that the spike was caused by eating his sibling's HC food on Christmas day (my bad, I forgot to remove the bowl), but the levels are persisting after 48h - I would expect a glucose load to be cleared in 12-24h tops. Right? Any other general advice, especially for a cat that won't cooperate at the vet's? I can see the terror in her eyes... I mean, the vet's eyes! Anything else I might be missing? I will upload a SS as soon as I figure out how (DONE) The plot shows all the records in one figure (insulin and readings).
