Back to the vet...

I took Jonathon to the vet today.  He gained a little more than 1/2 a pound.  His blood sugar was 323, which is the highest it has been since last Monday (the 16th), when it started getting higher.

He was eating Science Diet Adult when he got here and I continued that food because the vet did not want to change his diet.  Last week, after his blood sugar rose, I changed him over a few days to a high protein, low carb diet.  This diet, some say, can help control and even "cure" diabetes in cats.

I was really surprised that he gained weight because I thought that a high protein, low carb diet would cause him to lose weight.

He went in for a fructosamine test, we should get the results of that tomorrow.  He will need to be back on insulin but we are waiting for the results of the test. Depending on the results of the test, the dosage of insulin will be different.

The vet also gave me a different food to feed him, Purina DM.  I would rather keep him on the food I have him on now, but I am not a vet.  So, I am following the vet's advice.  She claims that this is a very low carb food, as low or lower than what I am feeding him.
