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. 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!
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!
Hello, furiends. It is time for me to tell you about my blood sugar readings for the week. Some of you may be more interested in what happened this week because the human switched my insulin doses. We were seeing too many low readings, and the human did not like this.
And that is good news. There is a saying that high glucose readings kill slowly but low ones can kill quickly. So it is better to have my blood sugar readings higher than we like over me being hypoglycemic.
We had excitement besides changing my insulin doses this week. The refrigerator we had in our home finally broke down. So we needed a new one. And it was quite interesting when it arrived.
They had to take the front door down, furiends. And that was not good, because Koji ran out the door. The human went and got him, but Koji ran out again.
The human had to put Koji in the bathroom to keep him from running out. And as soon as they put the door up and left, the human let Koji out of the bathroom. He and I immediately started sniffing the new refrigerator, and we put our nose marks on it.
The human thought this was funny, and he thought it was even more funny when Koji quickly hopped onto the top of the new refrigerator to take a nap.
Well, furiends, that is all for now. I will tell you about my blood sugar readings next week. Let’s hope they stay under control.
