Default Re: Annie - Getting too smart!


So Annie had the growth near her eye removed yesterday. I fed a reduced meal last night (about ½ normal), and about ½ insulin. Her BG tested at 273 this morning which wasn't bad concidering what she went through yesterday and the guess at food and insulin.

Here's the problem. I fed & injected normally this morning and did a random test at 3:30 (+9 hours) and she tested 441! I guess I'll repeat tonight and then do a curve tomorrow. To be honest, the injection this morning didn't "feel" right. It felt like I was poking the needle into a hard spot.

Her affected eye looks much nicer than it has in years. So I'm also wondering if an insulin reduction (even with the recent 441) might be needed? The affected eye had been a little "yucky" (non-scientific term) and now looks clear. Guess time will tell .


ps. The vet was happy that Annie actually gained a pound since last year.
Annie was an 18 pound Lhasa Apso that crossed the rainbow bridge on 10-5-17. She was nearly 17 years old and diabetic for 9½ years.
