Question Re: Sissy's Mom

Is it possible that after a couple of days she gets a little to much insulin built up,and that is pushing her #'s higher.? Then she uses it up when higher and comes back down????

Default Re: Sissy's Mom

I don't think you're getting a build up EXCEPT

let me say a word about shots in the scruff (neck between shoulder blades) - my vet told me not to use that area because it may be less effective. Think of it this way - the scruff area could be acting like a sponge for your insulin, and maybe it is building up there. Now, that's a wild theory about what might be going on with her, but it corresponds with the advice I wanted to give you - to try shots in a different location. They may be more effective.

Can you start giving shots on her side - shoulder or above the flank area? You have to pinch the skin pull up, and then get the needle under the skin, but not in the meat/muscle. It's easy, but not as easy as the scruff.

You gotta get a feel for it to make sure you get the insulin under the skin, but not in the muscle.
