Well one of the main functions of the Pancreas is to make insulin for sugar metabolism. Without insulin the body cannot utilize sugar. Sooo If I were you I would have the little one tested for sugar in the urine which is called Glycosuria. If it is positive he may have diabetes.
In the early stages of diabetes a cat will try and compensate for the inability to utilize blood sugar by eating more FOOD!
This may be what is happening now since the pancreas has been compromised. I would check with your vet to be sure this is addressed, K?
....and if you think I just know this off the top of my head, ooh NOOOO!
I have a wonderful reference guide that makes me sound brilliant, LOL!
Please keep us posted if you will.
The best to you both,
Just checking in. What is the latest! Hope you have some answers.
I agree with CML's suggestions. Our cat, Sammy, was diagnosed with diabetes more than 2 years ago through a blood test. When he was diagnosed, he had lost quite a lot of weight and the vet couldn't understand why Sammy was losing so much weight. I would definitely bring your cat back to your vet and ask for a blood test. You could also ask for a fructosamine test to see how much sugar is in your cat's blood. I wish you and you cat well. I would get your kitty to his vet asap. Eve
