Re: Need help with Ben

To add on to what jesse girl has said... Ben’s BG numbers looked pretty good back in 2016. Has something changed medically that would be causing high BG?

Any dental problems, urinary tract...

Re: Cushings, allergies, and newly diagnosed diabetes

Let us know how todayís curve goes. That will tell us more.

Iíd be careful about changing the amount of food and insulin at the same time. We usually like to only change one thing at a time.

Re: New member Snowball

Her February BG numbers look really good. Most of us here on the forum would be extremely happy with these numbers.

Re: New member Snowball

Like others have said, I donít think it has anything to do with her BG levels. They look really good.

A few posts back you mentioned that you were hand feeding her. That may indicate that there is...

I hope the skin issues clear up. A couple of years ago, my Lily somehow got sarcoptic mange. The itching and infections were really bad. She wound up seeing a dermatologist and it...

Re: Weird BG curve

Lilyís on a mixture of 13 units of Novolin N and 3 units of Novolin R. She gets the R to flatten out her food spike. In her case, it has the added benefit of prolonging the life of her insulin to 12...

Re: Diabetes, Cushings and Pancreatitis in my Dog

Sounds like a good plan.

I wouldnít bother with a fructosomine test, which shows the average BG over the past 2 - 3 weeks. A BG curve is more accurate in that it shows real time BG levels and...

Re: Has anyine switched from VETSULIN to NOVOLIN 70/30??

Re: Newly diagnosed Flea

Nice work with the home testing!

Re: Cushings, allergies, and newly diagnosed diabetes

If heís low, you really need to intervene and give him Karo Syrup, even if heís not showing symptoms. That will get his BG up a lot faster than food. You never want to risk the possibility of a...

Re: Athena. Newly DX: Diabetes

Thatís kinda crazy. Dogs are type 1 diabetics, meaning their pancreas no longer produces insulin. They are completely dependent on injected insulin. Their lives depend on it.

Re: Athena. Newly DX: Diabetes
