How long has she been without food?

Is she under any medical management for her diabetes? If so, what?

Have there been any changes to the diet? New food, including a change of flavors or protein source within the same brand? New treats? Bones? Has any human food been fed? Torn up toys or trash? Stressful changes to the environment?

When was a complete panel of bloodwork (read: not just glucose checks) run?
