Tucker’s numbers in the morning are fluctuating a bit right now. After the extreme low of Sunday, he started Monday with a more normal 17.7. This morning, however, he was just above ten. That would actually be a very good number for him, if it came several hours after receiving his insulin, but it is abnormal in the morning, before his injection, and therefore concerning.
I could take the roly poly to the hospital for tests to be run, but I have found that these rarely result in any concrete conclusions. I will deliver one of the beasts to the doctor when I suspect something is wrong or when I can’t think of anything to suspect. In this case, however, I’m pretty certain the doctor would find nothing substantial on which to base a treatment, and I would be told simply to monitor Tucker’s blood-glucose levels, and act accordingly. After years of having cats, one acquires an idea of when a veterinary visit will prove helpful and when it won’t.
I do have some thoughts about the Tuckster’s current state, but they aren’t really helpful, so I will continue to watch my boy and note what I see. In the meantime, he remains a happy little fellow, my sausage-shaped shadow.
Hopefully the numbers will stabilize soon and in the good range too.ReplyDelete
I do hope he stabilizes soon and stays that way for much longer. What a worry for you. Hope he does feel well in this state.ReplyDelete
It's distressing to hear that his numbers are still so unstable. Thankfully, he doesn't look too troubled by it.ReplyDelete
Bless him..!x BIG (((Hug)))) forReplyDelete
the little man...As long as he's
A very dear friend advises me all of the time: YOU know your cat better than anyone...better than the vet...better than cat-loved friends!ReplyDelete
Trust your instincts, and continue to take a calm look at the situation.
She says this to me, because I fly into panic mode EASILY, but nothing is gained by being crazypants.
That is the truth. I find myself crazypants when things go bump with Katie! Doesn't do a bit of good.Delete
I do hope you'll be able to sort this out and get his numbers stabilized. Lots of purrs from Derry-Bear. ♥ReplyDelete
He does look relaxed and happy, so whatever is causing the fluctuation doesn't seem to bother him.ReplyDelete

What's going on with Tucker is puzzling and concerning. But as Eastside Cats says, no one knows your cats better than you do. Hopefully Tucker's numbers will stabilize soon.ReplyDelete
Purrayers for Tucker to continue well.ReplyDelete
Hope you can figure this out to Tucker's benefit...and that he will continue to be well and happy.ReplyDelete
We sure hope you can figure out those numbers real soon, and get Tucker stabilized.ReplyDelete
Tucker...see if you can help your dad out with this. And ARE you eating something in the night that you're shouldn't? He's having a hard row to hoe with your numbers. You look wonderful though.ReplyDelete
There's nothing for the cats to eat in the night. And that would raise his numbers, rather than lower them, which would be less of a hazard.Delete
Tucker is there a place where you get your insulin that may be the secret of this concerning sauce? Possibly trying a new spot to inject, if you are not fully rotating already that is. Purrs of figuring this out you twoReplyDelete
I know Tucker is in good hands, hopefully his numbers stabilize soon.ReplyDelete
