Re: Frustrated with food spikes
 
I was frustrated with food spikes as well and went up and down with vetsulin thinking I was doing good. Now I use 4 U q12 and two small meals q12 I switched to Royal Canin Glyobalance (presription food) with a little bit of broiled chicken and Ollie's BS stays around 80-120 all the time. Thanks

Re: Frustrated with food spikes
 
Iím amazed (and envious) that some of you can so tightly control your pupís BG so consistently day to day. Itís much better here since Iíve started giving her R with the Levemir, but I still see some fluctuations from day to day. I think a lot of it may be due to the precision required with Levemir. Itís impossible to give the same exact dose every day. Drawing a dose that is just a hair +/- with Levemir is equivalent to giving .5-1 unit +/- with any other insulin since itís so much stronger.
