Default Re: Diagnosed today - lots of confusion and questionable veterinary visit/info

By general sugar levels, I meant the range between highs and low. If the whole 12 hours is on the high side, you’re safe to increase.

Vets here in Canada start the dose at 0.5 units per kilogram of weight. A kilogram is 2.2 lbs. And starting doses are usually pretty conservative.

The 2 units is very conservative I would expect.
Riley, 8 yr. old maltipoo, 25 lbs., diagnosed Feb 2017, taking thyroid meds, had pancreatitis and DKA mid March, eating Wellness Senior formula can food. NPH dosage now at 9.0 units Humulin N. Adding either pumpkin, spinach, blueberries, yams, or green beans to his food. Also omega-3 oil.
