Sybbie is doing really well with her blood sugar testing. 

The new machine works on half the amount of blood of the old one so it’s much easier to get a sample. It also connects to my phone and records the readings straight into an app. Very smart!

The readings have been a bit up and down so far. On two days the readings were below the level the vet set, therefore it wasn’t safe to administer the insulin. Thank goodness I was testing otherwise Sybbie could have had hypoglycaemia which can be fatal. She has a pot of honey next to her tank in case of hypos.

We’ve got a trip to the vet booked this week to review her levels and dose, and make a plan from there.
