Default Re: Diabetes and Blindness! Did your dog go blind?!

The vegies could amount to 50 percent of her meal as it is completely homemade and Human grade

Her sugars are adequate but with diabetes its up and down. For the most part her regulation is from 100 to 250 for the day . We have had better and sometimes not so much

If you want to add some foods like raysaint to your dogs commercial diet I dont think it will affect the sugar in any noticeable way

There are supplements which provide direct vitamins to help but like anything we dont know if it truly helps but I think it cant hurt to at least try some things

You cant reverse the process to a damaged lens unless you decide to go with cataract surgery Which does have risks . The only thing you can hope for is to slow the process down if cataracts have formed and we have nothing definitive on how to do that . You can try some things and if it doesn't affect blood sugar in a major way and it does no harm it maybe worth trying

Are you testing sugar and how is your dogs regulation which is important to controlling cataracts ?
Jesse-26 lbs - 15.5 years old - 10 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 8 and 10 units of NPH insulin depending on her fasting number
