Default Re: BC Bean the Medical Weirdo

Added some pumpkin into her meals starting with dinner. It mixes nicely with the raw and the digestive enzymes, we'll see how it does with regards to her BG levels and a curve in a few days. She thought it was very tasty, but she thinks almost everything organic is edible to some degree or another, including the rabbit food as it goes in and the rabbit food as it comes out. I'm almost certain that we've scrapped our weekend plans, I may be able to get a weekend off next month, maybe we can try then. Her sugars have dipped down a bit lower than I like, so hopefully the pumpkin will balance that out, because I don't know yet if I can feed her regular treats without setting off digestive issues. I just finished paying off the $$$$ surgery-turned-biopsy so I might as well rack up another vet bill with my list of tests.

Cooked sweet potato is another good option, good fiber and a bit more carbs than pumpkin, to bring sugars up a bit.

Definitely something to keep in mind depending how the pumpkin works. 1/4 cup of pumpkin nearly doubles her current carbs, 1/8 cup of sweet potato would do slightly more than that. I’m not sure where would be considered her carb “sweet spot” given trying to balance the diabetes with cancer (the enzymes cover the digestive but fine either way I would assume)
