Sorry for the long post.... The background - I just joined FMDB after Lestat gave my wife and I a bit of a scare last night. We took him to the Emergency Vets, and his BG at the time was a very low 24. Thankfully, we got him there in time, and he is responding to fluids/dextrose IV, and now they are working on re-adjusting/calculating how many units to have him on. In the meantime, I want to get a glucometer for basic spot testing, especially before his insulin is due. I know that isn't as often as I should, but even that probably could have prevented his accidental entry into a hypoglycemic episode. I know my choices are Human Glucometer (Relion seems to be the popular one here) vs an actual feline glucometer. I believe what I've learned from reading can be summed up as: Human: (Such as Relion) - Better availability and Lower ongoing supply cost, but Lower numbers than the actual Blood Sugar level, No real good calculation/equivalency formula. Numbers are slightly more accurate at lower ranges than higher ranges. Good availability (can run out to wal mart as needed) Pet (AT2 or Advocate) - Higher supply cost, but More accurate numbers as they are designed for Feline blood Limited availability unless I make sure my supply exceeds demand. (Online or from vet) I've yet to find a happy medium, such as a mid range cost with good availability, and accurate numbers. I'm leaning towards one of the Relion models, but before I make that purchase, I was wondering if anyone experienced with it could provide general guidelines for low, normal, and high, even if the Relion values won't match the actual Blood Sugar values, they can at least be used as guidelines. I know that normal blood sugar should be about 120-300 for a cat. But how does that translate for Relion values? I guess what I'm looking for would be Relion values that approximately equate to the following (with my guess in parenthesis): Hypoglycemic; Get to Vet ASAP - (less than 60) Low Sugar, but food/Karo Lite Syrup should help - (61-80) Good Sugar levels - (81 - 200) Slightly high, but normal insulin should resolve the issue - (201-25o) High, possible increase of Insulin dose - (251 or higher) any hints/advice would be appreciated. Many Purrs of Thanks!
