134. Stress hyperglycemia is VERY common in cats.

It's why I don't do very many blood glucose curves in my diabetic patients. They turn out screwy every single time.

That sort of stress reaction requires no treatment whatsoever, except perhaps tranquilization of kitty prior to the next visit, lol.

More importantly is, what did urinalysis show. High blood sugar plur sugar in the urine equals diabetes in most cases. Hope your vet is keeping on top of this. Untreated diabetes is fatal.
