Re: New user, just diagnosed. Greetings.

If I may ask a question - I noticed on the diagram the intradermal 10-15degree angle, would that be a "bad" way to inject? I'm curious because I feel like I hold the needle at that angle, although...

Things are going really well, I think both of us are a little less stressed! Eating well for me 2x's a day, maybe it was just the dog food (fingers crossed). I did notice that her sugar has been a...

Re: Bad Eating habbits - suggestions welcom

Well, I didn't really give her the option of eating back up (OMG I cannot believe I'm having this discussion hahahaha!)... next time I will see if she tries. Thank you for that little fact :)

Re: Bad Eating habbits - suggestions welcom

I really hope it doesn't come to this, but I guess if she persists on not eating in the morning, I'll have to work with her vet in...

Re: Bad Eating habbits - suggestions welcom

Hello,
Well, I don't really know what the thought is behind his theory. The vet said zero means she doesn't have any sugar and thus the insulin is high? I do not test with a meter, I know this is...

Re: Bad Eating habbits - suggestions welcom
