Jordy is a 13 year-old male Norwegian Forest Cat, born October 19, 1993. He was diagnosed with fd on September 13, 2003. Jordy received steroids on and off, due to CIIC (chronic inflammatory interstitial cystitis), for the 4 years prior to being diagnosed as a diabetic. He is currently at his normal body weight of 18 lbs. I use a One Touch Ultra or Bayer Ascencia Elite glucometer.


Meds:

Idexx PZI on a sliding scale. He is home-tested multiple times a day.

Monthly subQ injections of Vitamin B12

Amitriptyline 5 mg. daily as needed for bladder pain/hematuria


Diet:

1 can of low carbs FF or other brand per day

Snacks: Freeze-dried 100% chicken treats and Bonita tuna flakes.


Due to a "sputtering pancreas", Jordy is difficult to regulate and occasionally goes into brief remissions for no explainable reason other than his pancreas is working a bit on its own. Below is a common TR result with Jordy. He has only hypo'd 2 times during the 3 years he's been diabetic. Once was in January 2004, and he had strong symptoms of a hypo. He recovered and didn't have anymore hypos until 8/20/06 and he was asymptomatic at that time. He recovered fully and quickly from both episodes.
