Default Re: Pre making needles

the only problem i could see is maybe the mixing of insulin that needs to be done and if it can be mixed in a syringe before giving the shot . If your testing blood sugar you could test to see if there is any difference

I dont find it cumbersome to fill a syringe at meal time

Default Re: Pre making needles

Itís not that itís a huge deal making the needle at meal times.. I just have 2 dogs, one diabetic and one no diabetic, and they are the least patient dogs EVER! So as soon as they see me making the needle they know itís meal time and start going nutS! So that was the only reason I was thinking about doing it.. Iíve done it in the past when we went on vacation for a friend that was watching them for me.. and the insulin does separate, however if you roll it with your fingers and warm it up it goes back to normal.. but I may do like you said and maybe do a curve with and without pre making them and see what the numbers look like!

Thanks so much for the advice!

Default Phoebe's insolent is over 600 out of nowhere

Hi Phoebe is a golden retriever Chow mix who's been diagnosed for about 4 years now, she takes 18 units morning and night and I feed her blue Buffalo weight management food. How sugar has been really good for quite a while now, and out of nowhere today it's shot up 2 / 600 and I have no idea why! I tested her ketones and it showed negative.... Anyone with any kind or thoughts are input how I can handle this and get her sugar down to a more reasonable number?

I apologize for the grammatical errors I am talk texting while I pet my baby!

It could be bad reading . Low battery on the meter . Check to make sure the meter is working well and give it a few days to see if its just a blimp on the radar . If you continue to see a change in the pattern a vet visit maybe a good Idea to check for infection . Any physical symptoms ?

Just kind of notice she was moping a little bit..so I thought I would check it just to make sure everything was okay and that's the reading I got... I checked the batteries and I did it twice and both times I got the same result.. it just kind of scared me because she hasn't been that high since she was diagnosed.. she also has a rather large cancerous tumor on her chest but that's all that really hasn't affected her diabetes..

Keep us apprised . Hopefully just an odd ball event but you definitely want to monitor
