Re: Ace the Border Collie

We've had good results with the Walmart Relion insulin and the prices are great. I don't know what you're doing for enzymes, but you might want to see what your vet thinks about Pan-tenex enzymes if...

Re: BC Bean the Medical Weirdo

Oh, no, given her diagnosis she shouldn't have ever been at diabetic BG levels at all, much less twice! Her tumor (insulinoma) is it's own out of control tiny insulin factory. She should be producing...

Re: BC Bean the Medical Weirdo

There are a handful of options, but the other common drug has side effects that make me prefer the prednisone (loss of appetite, vomiting, diarrhea and drooling). I think the rest are all...

Re: BC Bean the Medical Weirdo

Looks like we’re going back to hypoglycemia again. So disappointing. No symptoms yet, but this morning was 44, so I guess we’ll dust off the prednisone bottle. :(

Re: New member Snowball

Did the gabapentin and Meloxicam seem like they were improving her symptoms? I have never seen much effect from gabapentin in the dogs that have used it. I know one dog on meloxicam (and tramadol)...

Re: New member Snowball

Starting number looks good. The 9:30 could be a number of things somewhere between food digestion, insulin absorption, lingering effects of rebounds, etc... It will be interesting to see where the...

Re: New member Snowball

That's a much improved curve! They did say that high sugars could last 3 days after a rebound like she's been getting, then we should see them settle down and start to find their level as long as we...

I would take Jesse girl’s accumulated and up to date experience over a thread that is about 6.5 year old electronics. 8.5 years of hands-on daily management is worth a ton!!

Re: New member Snowball

Excellent! The waiting is the hard part, doing something by carefully doing pretty much nothing....

This is looking very hopeful. If you compare it to 10/9, where she started in a similar place...

Re: New member Snowball

I meant by meal timing that she was digesting enough at that point to have enough sugar going into her blood to balance the insulin so that’s why it evened out instead of dropping.

Though you...

Re: New member Snowball

Posting from my car, so only time for the vet curve with the shot at the office- I think they told you to drop back after that because while the numbers “leveled off”, that first plunge down the hill...

Re: New member Snowball

Excuse the long post, I went over all your numbers from the very beginning.

First a question: has any progress been made to getting Snowball on 2 appropriately measured meals? I know your wife...

Re: New member Snowball

Did you get a number before the insulin shot? Someone else will have to chime in on whether the shot at 7 with a little food and the rest of the food at 9 can work ok, I always gave the shot right...

Re: BC Bean the Medical Weirdo

We have been using several anti-cancer “supplements” (not from the vet, and no chemo). I’m just not sure how exactly a cancer affecting something as diffuse within the pancreas as Beta cells would be...

Re: BC Bean the Medical Weirdo

Last few days have been testing at the low end of normal before breakfast. The ultrasound looks just like the first one done, which is odd in itself given that the tumor(s) were larger than expected...

If they were little square crackers, they might be alpo. If they were, for her size, the recommended serving would be one treat a day, but she's not really at a "gets random treats" place right now....

Re: New member Snowball
