Hello! I’m new here. My boy TJ was just diagnosed with diabetes a couple day ago. I think I caught it in the early stages because he is 14 and my last cat passed at 15 so I obsessively watch him. I hate the anxiety I have with my pets get older. Anyway I noticed because he was bigger that he was losing weight and he was peeing a lot. I don’t feel he had obsessive thirst or hunger but maybe. I had always free fed my cats and they grazed throughout the day. Anyway his BG was high but all other numbers for his organs looked good. The vet told me to try changing his diet first before we started insulin so I got different wet foods to try. I see fancy feast is popular hear. Is any grain free ok? I’m hopeful, but not fully expecting a diet only change to fix things. Has anyone had success with regulating diabetes without insulin? Second question, how long till I would notice something improving with the food change? I know getting back to a healthy weight will take time but how do I know if diet change is working if at all? Does the urination get better quickly? I just don’t want to try for too long meanwhile he is getting worse. Thank you. Oh one more thing, I have a younger cat still eating the kibble. Should she only eat wet food as well to prevent future problems?
