Default Re: Is my dog beginning to fail?

I think a vet visit is wise also to see if something else is going on. Infections, allergies, and inflammation can all raise blood sugar and increase resistance to the effects of the insulin. And there are other conditions, such as Cushing's disease and thyroid disease, that can affect blood sugar levels as well.

When did you last start a new bottle of insulin?

Occasionally you can get one that's been damaged in shipping. So if you haven't tried switching out to a new bottle since this started, that's worth trying as well.

Where are you injecting?

Any sign of scar tissue or thick areas building up where you are injecting?
