Does anyone have any first hand information about this? Cost, inconveniences (ie. urine collection, meter reading) etc...

Just want to be informed before we make any final decisions.

Was one of your cats recently diagnosed with diabetes?

i suspect he will if you see my post (ozzy isn't doing so well again).
the vet did blood work and his glucose reading was 22.8 which is really high. we're trying to make an informed decision on whether to continue treatment or put him down. (if that is in fact what he has). if it's not and it's "fixable" by pills or other medication we'll decide what to do in that case. but it's a pretty good bet that he has diabetes.
