放心有我在!小男孩血糖一掉,拉拉立馬感應求救去..

文/呆呆狗

狗狗是人類最好的朋友,由於牠們聰明又忠誠,不少汪星人會訓練成專門照顧、協助人的狗狗,像是導盲犬、搜救犬和服務犬之類的...那酸可有聽過「糖尿病預警犬」(Diabetic Alert Dog)呢?沒有的話,今天就一起來聽聽「7歲男孩與黑拉拉」的故事吧..


▲糖尿病預警犬「黑拉拉」。

小男孩「Luke」2歲時,被診斷出來患有1型糖尿病,一種自體免疫性疾病,由於基因或是自體免疫系統破壞產生胰島素的胰腺胰島β細胞所引起的病..必須注射胰島素治療,目前並無其他治癒方法..


▲黑拉拉與他的小主人Luke。

Luke的爸媽雖能一旁陪伴,但到了夜晚睡覺時刻,就無法好好留意..所以領養了身為糖尿病預警犬的「Jedi」,讓牠24小時陪在男孩身邊。Jedi是一隻經過5年專業培訓的糖尿病預警犬,牠利用極好的嗅覺,每天10幾次偵測Luke的血糖變化..


▲不管怎麼拍照,拉拉Jedi就是一直守護在小主人Luck身邊呢!


▲一旦,遇到男孩血糖掉落的情況時,Jedi立馬會吠出聲或是跑去通知媽媽..
 

Night alerts, where Jedi alerts to dropping blood sugars BEFORE they become dangerous in between the alarms we set to check on him. (just to clarify for people who just joined us Jedi catches dropping blood sugars before they go too low or very early on in the drop, we just call them all lows because to Jedi they are - even if it isn't technically a diabetic low - of under 70. We don't rely 100% on Jedi we have the dexcom CGM and still set alarms to check Luke over night because Jedi is a living breathing creature and can and does miss alerts as wonderful as he is he needs sleep too) Jedi jumped off the bed and started to alert (he's a big dog I always can feel him move around and jump off). I grabbed my phone to use for a flashlight and decided to turn the flash on and film what happened next. I missed the beginning of the alert but you can see him pawing the bed and yawning which is his stress signal that that something is wrong. Jedi caught this drifting down blood sugar at 72 which isn't dangerous in itself but it is low for night and Jedi knows when he's drifting lower so we can treat and watch closely - this early alert allows us to prevent as many dangerous lows as possible at night. Don't worry I immediately went to the kitchen to grab Luke a glucose tab - no Luke's or Jedi's were harmed making this video. A FEW THINGS YOU NEED TO KNOW BEFORE WATCHING THIS.1. Not all diabetic alert dogs alert at night. Jedi was a wonderful day alerter by the time he was one year-old but it took us until he was 18 months old with LOTS of training and LOTS of work to get him to alert at night. We still work on it and reinforce it to this day. He catches most things at night but he is a living creature that needs rest and if he's too tired he can miss and we never blame him for that. 2. Jedi's night alert includes jumping off the bed and doing whatever it takes to wake me up. He also bows for lows. 3. Luke wears a Dexcom continuous glucose monitor (an absolutely wonderful tool that everybody should have with or without a dog) it will alarm if Luke goes low but it is slightly delayed so if we wait for the alarms he would be lower. 3. At night we want Jedi to alert anything under 75-80 so that we can take immediate action. 4. My phone is within a few feet of me 24 hours a day since I track Luke's blood sugar on my watch that is Bluetooth connected to my phone. My phone, his kit, all his emergency supplies are on my headboard at all times when I sleep. 5. Jedi sleeps with me since I'm the one that he has to tell there's a blood sugar issue. He can smell Luke from my room with no problem. 6. Having a dog alert at night actually means you get less sleep sometimes. You have to acknowledge, reward and confirm every alert even if you're tired and you don't want to. 7. Oh and we love Jedi. he is family. (The baby sleeps right next to me so I'm whispering and I sped up the part where I was fumbling with Luke's finger prick he was moving around a lot and as you can see I have a bandage on my thumb due to stitches which makes testing Luke a little bit harder. Hopefully you get the idea of what alerts look like. It took a LOT of work over 3.5 years to get him alerting like this)

嗚嗚嗚~~~不覺得看完很感動、心暖暖的嘛? Luke雖身體並不如一般孩子健康,但有爸媽的疼愛跟Jedi的忠心守護,還是很幸福的...


▲加油!不要怕!
