Subject: A question for vets

I have a 3.5 yrs old male Marshall's ferret who weighs 3.6 lbs. He had
ECE at 1 yr old and since has had an enlarged spleen. At his 3 yr
check-up, his blood glucose level was 64. I have monitored his BG level
monthly since and it has climbed slightly to 74. He shows no signs of
any illness and has never displayed any of the classic symptoms of
insulinoma. He romps violently with my 2.5 yr old pair and seems to feel
very well. I'm thinking he may be harboring a low grade helicobacter
infection which Dr. Williams has said he often finds associated with
enlarged spleen, but don't know if that would have anything to do with
the low BG. We will have another visit with his vet next month and would
appreciate any suggestions of test or treatments we should explore at
that time.
