Jesse can eat extra food from her enterprising ways of finding it and on many occasions it did not create high sugar . Even something sugary

She has been high all day just about. 4 hundreds and 5 hundreds. I gave her half her food tonight so hopefully she back to normal in the morning. She didn't want to eat all that much tonight anyway.

Did not run tests over the weekend as snowball seemed to be doing well. Tested this morning and it was 541 which surprised me. Been better rest of the day. She is on 3.5U all the time. She played with her toys last night which she hasn't done except for one day in the past 2 or 3 months and it used to be every night. She seems better, but I'm worried there is permanent nerve damage in the back legs as she is scared to go down the little step out the back door or up the step to get back in and that was never a problem before.

I strongly doubt permanent nerve damage happens that quickly. More probably the bit of neuropathy she may have had is still slowly diminishing, as sugar levels become better and more consistent.

In humans, nerve damage is a long slow process, over many years for controlled diabetes.

The vet says there was a dot of cataracts but very small when she checked her. She seems to see fine.

The legs seem better too at this point. She is going in and out of the house now although sometimes I still need to help her as she might get scared.

I don't worry about a high number until it's a trend - is the high fasting level of blood sugar typical for her or was this a one-off?

Just an update, she still doing well. She had a little issue in late november early december as her food dose got messed up and she went a little low on the blood sugar and got a little numb again but lately she is fine. Doing 3 units morning and night with 1/3 a cup food in the morning and at night.
