Hi all, New to this site and feline diabetes. My cats name is Do daa and he is 11.5 years old, 14.5 lbs. and has recently been seen by the Vets and diagnosed with diabetes. (Yikes this is a long post!) He is a diehard dry food only cat for his whole life and I know that's a problem in the long run. He has currently been weened off the original dry food Friskes Seafood Sensations and is currently on Dr. Elseys Clean Protein Chicken. He is supposed to be eating just a little less than a full cup (.90) at (450-470 cals) a day. We have broken it down to 1/3, 1/3 and 1/3. He is also a diehard Grazer and does not eat a lot at any one given time. 10-20% of a 1/3 of a cup. Transitioning him to wet food, if possible, will take time. This is a stressful time for all involved. He has yet to eat the full 1 cup requirement per 24hrs. but seems to be progressing towards that goal a little each day. Dr. Elseys is 59% protein vs. FSS at 30% and it's taking him longer to digest? His bowel movements are normal so far. There it no unusual walking. He is on Prozinc with the dosage at 2 units in the morning, and 2 at night, a total of 4 units per day. He has only been on Prozinc since mid day last Friday Sept. 27th. 2019. I'm using the Relion Prime meter with u40 syringes. Test strips are current. We are very new to all of this. A couple of times this past week, he has been high "HI" on the meter which means 600+. The vets are closed on the weekends and on Wednesdays (issues on these days of course) and we've had to wing it logically a couple of times. I'll give the numbers for the days so far: (TEST/FOOD/INSULIN is the procedure) 9/27: The day he was taken to the Vet He had his first shot around 1230pm 1048pm 511 Was not told to leave food for him overnight and then... crashed in AM. 9/28: 934am 35 - tested again - 46 no insulin given (very lethargic) Did not know about Karo Syrup at this time or didn't hear from Vet. Information overload. 952am 51 tested again 57 then ate food 1134am 118 133pm 366 535pm 427 931pm 504 insulin given Food left overnight 9/29: 922am "HI" per meter 600+ 937am insulin given 1147am 413 604pm 559 937pm 375 951pm insulin given 1133pm 278 food left overnight 9/30: 849am 112 food but no insulin given 954am 107 (Called Vets because of these numbers - down after food?? Went to Vets, left him there all day, they tested our meter against their "pet" meter, apparently ours is less accurate at the lower end of the numbers 20-30 points - according to them. Picked him up at 530pm, big stress on Do Daa all day, no eating no peeing. Not helpful.) 846pm 460 902pm insulin given food left overnight 10/1: 850am 373 901am insulin given 851pm 68 no insulin given 10:06pm Checked again 79 - no insulin given food left overnight 10/2: 854am "HI" per meter 600+ 859am insulin given 1050am 592 255pm ( 6hrs after does) 502 842pm 157 no insulin given food left overnight 10/3: 837am 573 849am Insulin given 846pm 180 no insulin given *(The food left overnight has been 1/3 of a cup or slightly less) All the blood work tests were done including a urine tests all of which came back normal except for the high glucose. Which started us on this journey. I am confused by these results. Is Something Wrong? Many of these days he has only received 2 units in the course of the day. If it's below 200 we do Not give him insulin. A couple of times it's been really high in the AM and really low in the PM.
