Hello, my furiends. Today is the day where I share my blood sugar readings with you. I wish I had good news to share, but unfortunately, I do not. My blood sugar readings are nowhere near what my diabetic cat cousin Minion has. He has blood sugar readings that are consistently in the 70-80 range. Mine are not.
For the week, my blood sugar readings were a lot higher than either me or the human would want. They averaged 284 for the week, which is way higher than we want. That is also much higher than the average for last week.
I do not know why my blood sugar levels spiked so high. The human does not know, either, and he is thinking that it might be time to increase my dose by a half unit to see if we can get this under control.
He is going to talk to the humans in white coats to see if they have any suggestions for him. He has increased the amount of wet noms that I eat, and he only feeds me high protein dry noms. That is supposed to help bring my blood sugar levels down, but it obviously did not.
To give you an idea of where a feline’s blood sugar readings should be, the normal range for us is between 40-130. My diabetic cat cousin Minion, through the use of insulin, is consistently seeing blood sugar readings in that range.
The blood sugar readings I saw this week are so high that they have reached the renal threshold, where excess glucose starts to go into my urine. It may be why I have been drinking so much water and why I have had to use the litter box so much.
The human is not too worried, but he is concerned. I know that he will work hard to get things under control and I hope to have better news for you next week.
