So since joining this forum and reading alot about all the other bulldogs having head tremors and the owners giving them Kyro syrup to snap them out of it because they think its linked to possible low blood sugars... I went to the vet and told her all I read about on here and she said she had never heard of it, but was willing to help me explore the options. She said that we could do a blood test to see what Bella's average glucose levels were for the past 3 weeks, its called Fructosamine. (sorry I can't spell!) Well she did the test and I got a call yesterday informing me that what I had been reading could be true because Bella's blood sugar was low. She then called an Internal Medicine Vet and discussed what I had told her from here and then the results of Bella's test. The Internalist said that we should recheck her levels again in a few weeks, and if it comes back low again that we need to then start searching for WHY. Not that its just that she could be diabetic, they are saying we need to check her liver functions to see if its working properly, and then if that comes back ok then we need to check her pancrius because she could be developing tumors and that they could be causing the blockage of insulin being produced! SO aparently YES the head tremors can be due to low blood sugar, but I guess that means there is a possibility of another underlying issue, not just a neurological issue.
My poor girl can't catch a break! Just had a possible cancerous tumor removed last Friday and now this! I will get the pathology results hopefully by friday or saturday. The waiting is killing me! And just for the record my bulldog feels no pain! once the anastesia wore off she was crazy! running around, jumping! I had to get a sedative in order to keep her calm so she didn't pop her stitches!
We go back on the 20th for the recheck of her Fructosamine levels and to get her stitches removed. I will post what the outcome is just incase it would help other owners and their Bullys!
