Re: Hershey

Re: GSD diagnosed at 12 weeks, glucose still high

Are you doing curves or just spot checks?

At 139, the insulin dose can't go any higher.

Levemir wouldn't be my first choice for regulating a puppy because you can't finetune the dose...

Re: Exocrine Pancreatic Insufficiency (EPI)

I don't think so. EPI refers to the digestive enzymes not being produced rather than insulin. We have had a few dogs here with both diabetes and EPI so both is definitely a possibility.
