Default Weight Loss

Hi All. I'm new to the forum and so glad I found it.
My name is Krista and my 8 year old Husky "Kona" was
Diagnosed November 2017.

I'm still feeling a bit overwhelmed at times.

Is weight loss normal? My vet had me keep her on her regular food and I added fresh boiled chicken to every meal. But I do feel like she has lost weight.

Our vet it almost 100 miles from us, so I can't get her in as much as I would like to.

She is due for another curve and I'm going to get that scheduled next week.

We've had our ups and downs with her levels and the meds. We are up to 18 units twice a day. She has responded really well and it back to her normal self.

She is not over weight at all, about 76 pounds. Is this normal or should I add more protein to her meals.

Thank you for any insight.
