Re: Any advice for life with a diabetic (Non-EB) dog??
Taz just keeps getting better and better. This morning (at about 8am), I took his sugar levels at breakfast and insulin time, since we reduced him by 6 units twice a day, and he was at 3.6. I HAD to go to sleep (I work overnights), so I skipped his morning dose, just to be sure he didn't crash, and left my daughter with instructions to wake me up if he started drinking a lot, etc. When I woke up at 3pm, I checked his sugars and he was at 8.3 (JUUUUUUUUST above "norm"). So that was about 18 hours after his insulin shot. Tonight we are cutting him back even more and are trying him on 10 units.
I REALLY don't want to be giving him insulin when he could get low and we would be asleep or not home to see him crash so we can fix it, so we are trying to be really easy with the insulin, especially since he really seems to be improving.
