several ketone checks all good. Since increased to 10 units haven't been as high as the 691 but still a lot of 600 numbers.

Not really. Will do the curve on Mon or Tue for vet but spot checks based on insulin around 8 am and 730 pm changed dose from 8 to 10 on evening of 24th. At 2220 it was 638. next day at 1045 was 642, 1410 was 638, 1829 was 464 and at 2200 back to 639.
Yesterday spot check before morning insulin was 431, 1215 was 643 and 2210 was 553. today so far before breakfast was 355 but at 1330 was 628 and haven't checked yet tonight.

RE Hershey:

Haven't been on in a while but really stressed now. Been on the NPH since april and good curve but not good numbers. But noticed the other day she was doing a lot of squatting without peeing after initial pee. Told myself to tell vet today I think she is getting a UTI and why, but yesterday morning after initial pee appeared her continued squats were producing blood. Vet appointment this morning so took a urine sample with me as was still bloody. But says not blood after testing it is Bilirubin. Kept her for exrays and blood work. He sent us home with meds for UTI and another for liver. Said she appears to be one of those rare cases of insulin resistance. Was on 22 units wants to increase to 25, check UTI in a week and more blood work in about a month. Sounds to me like perhaps a liver problem has been the issue all along and now suffering from liver disease. Her high numbers were the ALT, GLU, ALKP and CHOL all pointing in that direction. So stressed. Anyone else have any good stories relating to this situation.

Feels like it's all about making $$$$$$$ and I CAN'T TOLERATE THAT! Good luck!♡♡♡♡
