Default Re: Elderly long-term diabetic having weird episodes

you really need to stick with one dose. Her body will be confused and it won't be able to get used to how to metabolize the insulin. And her numbers will be erratic and unpredictable; that can be dangerous.
Using different doses of insulin is really only done with fast acting insulin, for us human diabetics. Our long acting stays the same.
Consistency is paramount to regulating a dog.
