Kodak and his Blood Work Numbers
Mom just wanted to update all our furry friends on Kodak's diabetes. He was taken to the vet on Saturday because mom thought he wasn't "quite right." He's been acting a bit lethargic, he's been chewing the fur off his leg again, he's been radiating heat from his lower legs and abdomen and drinking more water. Our vet checked him out and stole his blood!!
Mom got the results of Kodak's stolen blood today. Our vet said Kodak's red and white blood cells all look good. His Kidney numbers are good as is his liver numbers and thyroid numbers. But as mom and the vet thought, his blood glucose levels are elevated.
His blood was stolen in April as well for these tests and mom wanted to share the differences:
April 2009 Aug 29 2009
Fructosamine 350 552
Blood Glucose 178 311
Glucose in Urine 0 2+
So Kodak will be getting more insulin. Our vet has increased his insulin to 2 units twice a day....mom hopes this makes Kodak feel better!
