Default Re: Your thoughts and advice please

Allowing those BG levels to remain above 250 can lead to blindness from developing cataracts. If you're using the Novolin N now, the intermediate version, I'd ask the vet about adding Novolin R, the fast acting version, to get the levels to drop quicker.

You would probably be able to lower the dosage on the Novolin N by doing so.

Midday levels in the mid 100's are where I like to see Scooter.
