I hope you furiends had a wonderful weekend. Of course, as a feline, I do not have to worry about work days and days off. I get to enjoy every day, and do not have to worry about working unless I want to. All I have to do is tolerate my two insulin injections and ear sticks because I’m a diabetic cat.
It is time for me to give you an update on my blood sugar readings. This is the challenge a diabetic cat must face — monitoring my glucose levels so that we know the proper dosing, and prevent any dangerous situations.
I am happy to say that it was a much less chaotic situation than the past few weeks. Instead of flirting with hypoglycemia and then seeing my blood sugar skyrocket, we saw much more controlled blood sugar levels. While there was still a bit of a spread, it was not as extreme as the roller coaster rides we saw in the past few weeks.
For the week, my blood sugar level averaged 209. To put things in perspective, this is a level where the humans in white coats, if they saw it during an annual check up, would have told my human that I was not diabetic but to watch out for it.
We had a high reading of 324, and a low reading of 97. We only had one reading where it was at a level where a diabetic cat like me would suffer complications, and that was that high reading of 324. And we did not have any readings where hypoglycemia would be a concern.
I am happy because my blood sugar average reading is getting closer to that 200 level where we can consider me a diabetic cat whose condition is well controlled. The 209 level where my average was for the week is okay, but both the human and I would like to see it just a little lower.
Let’s hope we can get it there!
