Re: Newly Dx: Ruby, my foster rescue Yorkie mix

Thanks, Jesse Girl. This must be the only change I make this week because she is scheduled to see the vet next Tuesday, which gives her a week to adjust. She IS feeling better, so that is good to...

Re: Newly Dx: Ruby, my foster rescue Yorkie mix

I'm adding kibble for both reasons, and a third: she is underweight. The "dance" is, of course, to get her bg into an acceptable range while increasing her weight. I know the kibble I am using is not...

Re: Here we go again!!!!!!!!

Keep up the good work!

Re: Newly Dx: Ruby, my foster rescue Yorkie mix

Thank you both for your responses. Ruby's am fasting number is gradually dropping, so we are double checking it. Today she was 151 at 6 am and 205 at 8 am. Both are fasting numbers. She ate a full...

Re: Newly Dx: Ruby, my foster rescue Yorkie mix

Parallel readings did not go so well, so I abandoned the One Touch for now. Found a new friend who had some extra strips for the AT, which filled in until my order could arrive. I have been ill with...

Re: Newly Dx: Ruby, my foster rescue Yorkie mix

Your comment about injecting for 30 years made me :o.

Re: Newly Dx: Ruby, my foster rescue Yorkie mix

Thank you, Raysaint. We decided last night to make the change now. The vet put her on 1 unit of Novolin N, which I began last night. She didn't have the near hypo incident which is a relief. Next...

Exclamation Re: Newly Dx: Ruby, my foster rescue Yorkie mix

Well, we are not yet friends. This morning was a hassle with her injection. After 3 tries, I used the U100 syringe, which I already had. Much easier!!! May just switch to them. (Had to make a...

Re: Newly Dx: Ruby, my foster rescue Yorkie mix

Thank you, Raysaint. I wondered why the vet started her so low, since 1.4-1.5 is the recommended beginning dose. Her highest BG was 497 and after the .5 dose, it did come down during the day. We have...
