Default Sugarversary

Man, how time flies. It's been 2 years since diagnosis. I'm very happy he's quite healthy, according to his last bloodwork, urine, examination.

But consistency and steady regulation has not been achieved to what I believe it should be. Frustrating. Sometimes there's not a whole lot you can do {or is there, my brain always asks.}

There's a point where you could be flirting with too much potential for lows when you don't expect them, especially with a dog like Riley with varied nadirs and fastings.

My vet said, " he's just a weird little dude." But she also brings me back to earth by pointing out he has no clinical signs, which is a big thing with dogs. But hard for a number focused diabetic like myself to accept.

I need to be thankful I have him {which I am}, but stay vigilant in keeping him my little buddy for as long as possible.

Thanks to all on this forum for everything I've learned about diabetes and emotional control.

yay for a wonderful job both of you have done . It is no easy task . That is key not seeing any diabetic symptoms . Jesse has always had her ups and downs and really its more common than you think . Keep up the good work

Congratulations! You've really been on top of his care. He is a doll. Most of us who are/were more active on this forum had dogs who "didn't read the manual"
