Default Re: Jesse girl

Just an update on jesse . She has reached her 9 years being diabetic . She is still jesse enjoying chasing rabbits and loving her dinner .

Her symptom from epilepsy have been gone for a couple years and has been in decline for 7 years . Maybe being diabetic and having higher sugar on the brain may help but who knows for sure . Her high anxiety from loud booms has also gone away which must have been related to epilepsy . She also is more social and enjoys cuddles more .

I think jesse has proven you can manage this disease many ways and be successful . jesse has used exclusively a human meter . She also only eats one meal so its possible to give a dose of NPH without a full meal . The other factor you can feed a home made diet and do good . We also are not that exact with food quantities but its pretty consistent . Her dose of insulin is relatively small compared to others and that could be because she is on a homemade diet.

Jesse just constantly surprises me for her zest for life and hope jesse can continue enjoying a dogs life for as long as that can be
Jesse-26 lbs - 16 years old ,10.5 years diabetic, one meal a day homemade and a vitabone snack . 3 shots of Novolin a day . Total insulin for a 24 hour period is 6.5 units of NPH insulin .
