September 16 Blood Sugar Readings

Hello, furiends. You will remember that last week, I told you that my blood sugar readings had the human  and me somewhat concerned. They were not at a point where I could get sick if they stayed there for a long time. And they were not so low that they were dangerous. But they did jump a lot from the week before, so we wanted to watch them closely.

My Blood Sugar Readings Had me Looking Like This

And that is why the readings from this week were so important. These readings would tell us if the human had to have a conversation with the white coated humans or not. If they went much higher, he was going to need to do that.

Fortunately, that will not happen. For the week, my blood sugar readings averaged 192. That is down a little from the week before, when they averaged 196. That does not mean that my blood sugar readings were as we like them, though.

We had some readings that were a lot higher than we wanted, and then there was one where my blood sugar levels were too low to risk an insulin shot. The human and I do not know why this happened.

Still, the overall levels are good. We will see if we can knock a few more points off my blood sugar readings next week. In the meantime, I will spend my time enjoying sun puddles and swatting the human when he annoys me.

September 9 Blood Sugar Readings

Hello, furiends. It is time for me to tell you about my blood sugar readings for the week. It has been an interesting week for me. The human got a new bottle of insulin. And Koji and I have been visited by an avian friend. This avian friend is very brave. Koji and I were both out on the balcony, and the avian friend came right over and landed on one of the plants.

They started to chirp, and they did not seem to care that Koji and I were right there. The human got worried that Koji and I would attempt to catch the bird. But we did not. We just watched the bird closely.

Now, on to my blood sugar readings for the week. For the week, my blood sugar readings averaged 196. This is much higher than we saw last week. We are still well below the level where it can be dangerous long term. But the human is still concerned about the big jump.

Sometimes, this happens when I get a new vial of insulin. The human does not know why that happens, but it does. And the readings towards the end of the week were much better.

I am hopeful that the trend we saw towards the end of the week continues. I will let you know about it next week. Until then, I hope you have as much fun with your friends as Koji and I had with our avian friend!

August 12 Blood Sugar Readings

Good morning, furiends. It is time for me to tell you about my blood sugar readings for the week. It has definitely been a hot few weeks here. The human is not happy about having to run the air conditioning all the time. Koji and I do not like being unable to go onto the balcony, either.

The human says this is because it is just too hot. And when Koji and I sneaked past the human onto the balcony, I have to say I agree. It is very warm out there!

No need to work on the fur tan when it is so hot. Besides, there are sun puddles in the home for Koji and me to use to get some sun. And when we get tired of them, we relax in the darker areas of the home and cool down.

This Feline is Cooling Down

But enough of how hot it is, furiends. On to my blood sugar readings. For the week, my blood sugar readings averaged 156. That is a lot lower than the week before, when they averaged 180. But either way, they are fine. These readings are well below the level where I will start to get complications from diabetes.

The other good thing about my blood sugar readings for the week is that none of them were so low that the human got worried. We had one test with results that made the human skip my insulin shot. But that reading still did not make the human get concerned.

Well, furiends, I am off to go and try to keep cool. The human noticed that when it is hot, I groom myself more. I am a smart feline, after all, and know that being a little damp helps keep me cooler.

I will tell you about my blood sugar readings next Monday. Until then, stay cool if it is hot where you live, furiends!
