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. It is time for me to tell you about my blood sugar readings for the week.
This week, my blood sugar levels behaved a little better. They averaged 200 for the week. That is lower than the 236 we saw last week, and the human is happy that we are not close to the level where my blood sugar can cause problems long term.
My body seems to be getting used to the lower insulin doses. We do not see spikes as high as we used to. And more importantly, we do not see low blood sugar readings that can be dangerous.
One of the white coated humans says that high glucose levels kill slowly but low ones can kill quickly. And that is why the human worries more about my low readings than high ones. I can get sick quickly with low ones.
My blood sugar readings are making me happy, but one thing is not. Unfortunately, it is going to rain today. And that means Koji and I will not be able to enjoy the balcony. The human moved the Marley tree back to the balcony, but Koji and I have been unable to explore it because it is settling into the pot. And the human does not want us feline on the dirt just yet.
He said something about putting mulch down and then letting us sleep on the wood chips, but I do not know if that will happen. I hope it does, because it would be fun to sleep in the sun near a tree!
Hello, furiends. It is time for me to tell you about my blood sugar readings for the week. For the week, my blood sugar readings averaged 236, which is much higher than the 186 we saw the week before. It is too close to the level where complications start to occur long term.
You will remember that we changed my insulin doses because we were seeing readings where my blood sugar was lower than it should be. Now we are seeing glucose readings where they are too high. But we will stick with the new dosing program for another week or two. We need to see whether the higher readings will moderate after my body gets used to the dosing.
This is one of the challenges of having a diabetic cat. Still, it is not that bad. The human will figure it out.
And now, for something fun. Yesterday was Easter. On Easter, many humans think about rabbits. And one small feline had a rabbit on its mind, too!
I will tell you about my blood sugar readings next week. Until then, I hope you have as much fun as this small feline did with the rabbit!
Hello, furiends. The human is feeling much better today, which means I can put him to work telling you about my blood sugar readings. The human ate something that made him sick. He had to go to the white coated humans for IV fluids because he was dehydrated. They also gave him medicine so that he would not have to use the watery litter box as much.
He still cannot nom normally, and he does not like this. But Koji and I are happy that he is feeling better. And we hope that he gets back to his normal self soon, so that we can annoy him.
Now, on to my blood sugar readings. For the week, they averaged 186. This is higher than what we saw last week, when they averaged 149. But remember, we adjusted my insulin dosing so that we would not see as many low readings.
It seems to have worked. Hopefully, my blood sugar levels will stabilize with the new dosing. I will tell you about them next week, assuming the human keeps getting better!
