Hello, furiends. It is time for me to tell you about my blood sugar readings for the week. I know you are interested in these, because with the noms I am eating now my blood sugar does not go as high. That meant the human adjusted my insulin doses.
For the week, my blood sugar levels averaged 149, which is higher than what we saw last week but still good. What is not good is that we saw a lot of blood sugar readings that were lower than we liked. Remember, high glucose levels make me sick over a long time but low ones can be dangerous immediately.
The human thinks he will adjust my insulin doses a little more, and cut the dosing by another half unit. Just a few weeks ago, I was getting three units if my blood sugar levels were over 100, and 2.5 units between 50 and 100. The human switched that to two units for levels between 50 and 150, and 2.5 for readings above that.
Now the human is going to change it again. He will give me one unit between 50 and 100, 1.5 units between 100 and 250, and two units for levels above 250.
Furiends, this is why it is challenging for humans with diabetic cats like me. It is not easy to always have to monitor my blood sugar levels, but the human does it because he knows it is something we need to do!
