What we're trying to transition to is home-prepared, modified to
lower carbs. There's only about nine ingredients, and few of them
end in "ate" or "ide," including a vitamin supplement and a taurine source.

I'm so glad your vet is cooperating with your food plan!  Smiley

Me, too, OF. Hope all the vets out there will give serious consideration
to the AAFCO feeding trials and their limits. Scared the heck out of me
to find out from a Menusux post that as of September, 2007, in the Oasis FDA food
refusal reports, wheat gluten is still being recalled for contamination of different
kinds.

I'm hoping the Q-kid likes and is able to handle mom's cooking.

Things continue to be difficult for my poor little Q-kid. Have a vet
appointment this week to check glucose. Spent the day cuddling
and was really wonderful. Keep good thoughts

3Cats and IQ,

As always, positive thoughts and prayers for you.

Eventually they will understand,
Replied the glorious cat
For I will whisper into their hearts
That I am always with them
I just am....forever and ever and ever.

Thanks, everyone, so much. I know your thoughts are there.
Just can't seem to balance kidney disease and diabetes, and
hoping Q-kid can make progress. Will let you know what
glucose is doing. Blessings for your kindness

Blood sugar is down to 393. Certainly not ideal. Vet said most
likely cause based on history was steroid administration.

IQ's such a great spirit and trying so hard to stay here. Barely
complains about all the stuff crammed down her throat, all the
sticks and pokes, and the frustration of having to wait just to eat,
and then a half-hour later getting stuck again. I'm certainly
learning lessons in courage from this incredible, loving cat.

393 is not really bad, if that's the peak and half of that would be her low.  Remember on insulin there will be peaks and lows in the glucose unlike cats not on insulin where the glucose is more stable.  So much better to have her on the high end rather than the low end of the glucose curve.  Sounds like you and her are really getting it under control!  My diabetic cat often saw 300's even though with the same exact diet her low would be at 130.  Really, this may be the best you can do and she can live for years like this.  Don't let the high numbers discourage you.

Thanks, Nabiya. That's the high level on fructosamine test. So maybe
it's better than I thought. What gutsy, trusting, and amazing
creatures all these fur-kids are.

The numbers may not be ideal (I don't know how good or bad they are, since I have no experience with feline diabetes) - but they're down. That's good; at least they're moving in the right direction.

When KD's kidney numbers came up at her last vet visit, he told me "it's just paper" and to treat her based on how she's looking and acting. I've tried very hard to take that to heart - clinically, she's doing much better than her numbers would suggest. Hopefully the same is true for IQ as well.

It's good advice: treat the cat, not the numbers. Continued good thoughts to you both.
