Blood Sugar

Herbal remedies for cats and dogs to help lower high levels of blood sugar in canines and felines.

The pancreas has two major functions, divided into the exocrine and endocrine portions. Pancreatic exocrine function secretes acid-neutralizing bicarbonate and several digestive enzymes. The endocrine pancreas supplies hormones that circulate throughout the body and help control metabolism. The pancreas is also charged with producing digestive juices and enzymes to help digest fats and proteins and producing the hormone, insulin, amidst many other bodily operations. Diabetes is a deficiency of the pancreatic hormone called insulin.

The liver is a complex organ that interacts with most organs in the body, including the intestinal tract, cardiovascular system, kidneys, and autonomic nervous system. Nutritional support for the liver must address these interactions must support liver metabolism, the pancreas and pancreatic function, hepatic circulation, bile production and flow, and hepatic immune function.

Blood sugar is, as the term suggests the level of sugar or glucose in the blood. These glucose levels fluctuate throughout the day and are strictly controlled by hormones so that they are maintained within a certain range. Catabolic hormones such as glucagon and catecholamine help to increase blood sugar levels, while the anabolic hormone insulin helps reduce blood sugar levels.

When these hormone systems are not functioning properly, blood sugar levels are not regulated and this can be incredibly dangerous for your pet. High blood sugar levels are referred to as hyperglycemia and when this is a chronic problem, it is known as diabetes. Low levels of blood sugar or Hypoglycemia can occur when the pancreas secretes too much insulin and is often a result of insulin treatment in diabetic pets.

While high blood sugar (hyperglycemia) is most certainly dangerous, the effects tend to be more long term resulting in conditions such as blindness, neuropathy and kidney disease if left untreated.

Hypoglycemia, on the other hand is more immediately life threatening and if levels are too low, every cell in the body becomes starved of life-supplying sugars. Symptoms of low blood sugar may include decreased heartbeat, slow breathing, weakness, disorientation, seizures and loss of consciousness.

Today, blood sugar levels can be monitored either by your pet’s veterinarian, or with the use of home glucometers.

Pets with diabetes or blood sugar problems need to be monitored closely, either with regular trips to the vet or through home blood testing kits.

Exercise is important for all pets, but pets with blood sugar problems need to exercise consistently. High activity levels can result in a dip in blood sugar and this will affect the amount of insulin your pet needs.

If your pet is prone to hypoglycemia it’s always a good idea to keep honey or pet treats nearby. In emergencies, honey can be rubbed into the gums to quickly increase blood sugar, which will give you enough time to rush your pet to the vet.
