Update on jesse girl

It is her 16th birthday and has been diabetic for 10.5 years . I reduced her dose by 1.5 units down to 6.5 units as she was running a bit low . Her sugar is running from 100 to 150 now. Funny she is almost 6 units under a normal starting dose for her weight . She is doing well for an old gal

She has disproved many myths like the ones I was told when this all began . She could live 3 years ,blind by diabetic cataracts in short order , you cant feed a homemade diet and you have to feed 2 meals a day . So there is allot of flexibility with the disease as long as your consistent . With her lower dose I think it is possible many dogs receive a dose that maybe to much but the body can compensate and do fine. Maybe the only evidence maybe a high number from time to time . May not catch the low number as it may have been short lived .

Jesse also has done some other amazing things . She lived with epilepsy from when she was a pup and went into remission almost 4 years ago . I never put her on medication. Professionals said she could live with the disease for 8 years and there was a 6% chance she could go into remission

So the motto of the story with jesse is if you put some effort into keeping your dog healthy outcomes can improve and by a whole lot . Of course allot of love is helpful and staying positive . I have also taken her lead and have been on a similar path as far as health taking better care of myself as me and jesse do it together . Once again thanks to the forum as I dont think we would have had these outcomes without it

You and Jesse are amazing.

I took the same stance as you- I do what I need to do even if it's not by the "book".

Congratulations Jesse girl and wonderful to hear!
