Re: Daisy Vee

This might be posted in the wrong place, but while on the subject of meters, I mentioned how close my OneTouch and Relyon meters have been for me. Your results may vary. The strips for the...

Re: Daisy Vee

Good stuff! I'm going to compare my daily use Relyon unit to the vet's meter when I get a chance. When I have reason to doubt the reading, I also have a one-touch-ultra-mini and a one-touch-utra...

Re: Daisy Vee

Good point Dawn,
My vet told me they would be read very close, but human meters would exagerate at both of the extreme ends of the scale. However, I will insist the we do a side-by-side test the...

Re: Daisy Vee

Daisy had one two months ago. I didn't understand what the vet was saying, but he sounded pretty much like what you wrote :) Our vet is big on blood analysis. He also did a fructosamine test then....

Re: Daisy Vee

That is exactly the type of experience I'm looking for. It verifies what I'm seeing with my Daisy. I'm giving the PredForte 4 times a day, along with other drops. The PredFort was...

Re: My Chief has passed my cushings dog

Cheif looked like a wonderful big handsome guy. He obviously would not have made it to 14 years without vast amounts of love and care. I'm sure he happily gave you back every bit of that. I'm...

Re: Daisy Vee

Re: Daisy Vee

Hi Marianne,
I'm not that clear on how to do a fasting curve and use the data, but I will likely do it, with help, after we get through this steroid tug-o-war in a few weeks. Two weeks before her...

Re: Daisy Vee

Thanks Natalie,
I never thought of the suguar spike before the walk. That sounds like a useful tool if she's already low and it's walk time. Maybe I'll try that when we get control again and the...

Re: Daisy Vee

Re: Daisy Vee

Oh! on the Vetsulin vs NPH;
my particular 95 lb dog could not get stable with Vetsulin for more than a week. There was no "trend" other than unexpected spikes into the 400's twice a week or so. ...

Re: Natalie's Chris

Chris reminds me very much of a dog I had as a boy.

He sure looks like a happy guy!
