Default Re: Insulin

He has only been on Vetsulin since September, 2018 - I have not tried any other insulin. He started at 4 units and is now at 13 units. The increase to 13 units was about two weeks ago.

Every day is a different pattern with the Vetsulin, but for the most part he is in the 250-300 range in the AM and I give him his food/insulin and it skyrockets to sometimes 600 - it remains relatively high up until about 4:00 p.m. and it goes down to 200's and by 5:30 it is in the 100's. It is then time to give him his insulin/food again (6:00) and it shoots up from 100's to the 500's within a couple hours.

I started a new vial of Vetsulin yesterday and he had a great day - his BG was around 175 right before dinner and I took it again at 9:30 p.m. and it was 238. That's the way it should always be.
15 yr old, Atypical Cushings, Pancreatitis, Allergies. 13.2u Vetsulin 2x a day. Royal Canin Glycobalance 1 cup 2x Day with 3 teaspoons boiled chicken. Snacks Green Beans. Tylan Powder, Purina Fortiflora, Flax Hull Lignans 35mg 1x day.
