Here is the MSVS feline diabetes brochure. The Excel Spreadsheet is for diet calculation and calorie recommendations.
The blood glucose curves are actual data from owners. The cat's owners have given permision to post their cat's medical records.
Socks case: the original vet's identity has been protected. The PDF was cropped.
Mozart was from a depomedrol injection for contact dermatitis. PU/PD 3 weeks post injection.
All cases are non virgin DM cats from other clinics. They have been on insulin for varying lengths of time'
I offer my diabetes tech's time and mine to reach our goal of remission. My tech and I can get complicated DM cats well regulated and stable if other inflammation and damage is managed but not into remission at this time.
I submit that this protocol's possibility of failure in DM cats is from another primary cause for the DM, not the cat having originally presenting with a primary DM.
I submit that primary feline DM is generally caused by diet. The carbohydrate diet saturates the beta cells with glucose to the point of cell membrane saturation of the glucose cell membrane receptor sites. The overwhelmed beta cells insulin producing enzyme system shuts down. When euglycemia is restored, with diet and tight insulin regulation, pancreatic glucose detoxification can occur. This working hypothesis has been eloquently stated in US patent # 6,203,825. From my DM remission results, I believe amyloidosis is not a primary cause of DM in even a minority of DM cats. Give the cats a chance!
Primary causes of complicated feline DM and DM remission protocal failure examples:
Advanced amyloidosis by mechanism of Dr. Nelson/Feldman.
Traditional complicated DM is ketoacidosis state. Just do not feed the cat high carbohydrate diets. Unfortunately the sick cat originally presents to us in this state. The cat has to eat what we feed it.
