I am a bengal cat who was born in 2005. In the summer of 2012, I was diagnosed as a diabetic cat. I want everyone to know that diabetic cats like me are just as fun and loving as cats without the disease.
Hello, furiends. I hope you enjoyed your weekend. It is time for me to tell you about my blood sugar readings for the week.
For the week, my blood sugar readings averaged 177. That is a lot higher than the 120 we saw last week, but it is still in a good range. But we did not like what happened with some of my readings. We had a number of readings where my blood sugar was too low.
The human thinks that the noms I am eating for whatever reason do not make my glucose readings go as high as the noms I used to eat did. This is a good thing, furiends. But it means the human needs to adjust my insulin doses. And the human is doing that starting today.
I used to get 2.5 units of insulin when my glucose was between 50 and 100. Now, the human will give me 2.5 units between 50 and 150. And then I will get 3 units when my glucose readings are above 150.
The human hopes this will help keep my blood sugar levels from falling too low.
We will see if it works and I will tell you next week.
Hello, furiends. You may have noticed that my website was not working for a few days. That is because of a billing issue with the company that provides the hosting. You see, the human’s credit card was used fraudulently, and when the human got a new one, he forgot to update the information for the hosting company.
But now everything is okay, and I am back online. And I want to tell you about one of my fellow diabetic cats who needs a home. I learned about him through Diabetic Cats in Need.
Sadly, before Ozzy came to Chesapeake Cats and Dogs, his diabetes was untreated. And because of this, he developed neuropathy, where his hind legs don’t work properly. The humans in white coats are hopeful he will recover with proper treatment of his diabetes.
Ozzy loves humans, and he enjoys posing for the camera. He will purr loudly when his humans pet him. And he also will roll all over to help them find the right spot to pet.
Hello, furiends. It is time for me to tell you about my blood sugar readings for the week. The human told me that many humans celebrated St. Patrick’s day yesterday. He said that a lot of humans drank things that made them clumsier and louder than normal. I do not know why you humans do this, but if you enjoy it, that is fine.
I would like to remind you that St. Patrick is not the only saint whose day is March 17. There is also St. Gertrude, who is the patron saint of cats.
Now on to my blood sugar readings. For the week, they averaged 120. That is lower than the 147 we saw last week. The human and I are a little concerned because we had many days where they were lower than we’ve seen in the past. And we also had some days where they were too low for me to get my insulin.
Even on the days where my blood sugar was at levels that could cause problems, I nommed quickly and it went up. But the human is concerned. He is not sure if maybe it is time for us to go with lower insulin doses.
I would not mind that. And neither would the human, because my insulin requires many green paper things! Less insulin means each vial lasts longer and the human saves those green paper things.
