Home Testing Glucose Levels in Cats

  Cat Health and Supplies

Home testing your cat's BG (blood glucose, or blood sugar) levels at home is an important part of regulating your cat. While you don't have to home test to successfully regulate your cat, many find the added peace of mind of knowing their cat's BG level well worth the trouble.

If you have a diabetic cat, consider doing home blood glucose testing. Just as cats become accostumed to their daily insulin shots, they will tolerate periodic blood tests.

Advantages of home testing include less stress to your cat, considerably decreased costs and time of monitoring compared to vet visits, closer control of your cat's blood glucose level by more frequent monitoring, and possible avoidance of deadly hypoglycemic episodes.
