Welcome...there are some very well informed people on this board who will give 
you a lot of info.  Being diagnosed at 16 is a bit unusual--was there a 
particular reason why the vet checked her?  Has she been ill?  My own Tucson, 
was diagnosed at age 4-5 after a few days of not eating like she usually does & 
looking real "pale".
