Default Re: Exocrine Pancreatic Insufficiency (EPI)

Are you exercising your dog at the park on curve days ? The only reason i ask is a dogs blood sugar can drop substantially during exercise . this can cause an artificially lower number preventing the dose from being raised but actually more maybe needed

Seeing a reduction in symptoms can point to the higher dose was helping . What may need to be corrected is that big drop in sugar
Jesse-26 lbs - 14 years old - 9 years diabetic - one meal a day homemade and a vitabone snack - 3 shots of Novolin a day sometimes Novolog or r as a correction to higher sugar but that is rare. total insulin for a 24 hour period is between 6 and 8 units of NPH insulin depending on her fasting number
