Have Cat Questions? Ask a Cat Vet Online.
Hello, JACustomer. I have been a Veterinary Nurse for over 15 years and would be happy to help you today. I'm reviewing your question right now.
Some cats respond very well to a diet change, just as we can see in humans. In fact, in many cases with cats they can achieve remission from diabetes with diet alone. It's not a bad idea to start the diabetic food and give it exclusively for 2-4 weeks and check her blood sugar values to see how she is responding. If her numbers are just as high or higher, yes, talk to your vet about insulin. However, if her values have come down into a more normal range, she may not need insulin at all.
