Default Re: Lily - My English Setter - Diabetes and Hypothyroidism

Hi All,

Back with an update on Lily. I've been reporting her BG levels back to her internalist twice a week and so far so good. This week's levels range from 104 to 229 and the internalist is happy with the progress. The next step will be going to the eye vet.

Here are couple more pictures (hope you don't mind).

The first picture was taken the day after we found out that Lily was diabetic. She's with her best friends Carly, Dakota and Carly's sister Maisy.

The second was taken today and shows the effect that hypothyroidism has taken on her. She lost practically all her tail, leg and belly feathering, but it is starting to come back now that she is on Soloxine.


Lily is a 62 lb English Setter, born 07-27-2007.
