Nice! That's a very impressive range of just 47 points.

Yes, we are both very happy with these #'s!! Drinking is back to normal and Cara is herself again! Even playing with her buddy!!! It's nice to see a turn around like this, after 15 days on NPH!

Just realized I hadn't welcomed another Canadian to the Board so a great big welcome to you and Cara.

What a beautiful transition from Caninsulin to NPH.

Congrats.
Louise

9:30 201
11.30 199
3:30 PM 232
5:30 226

Way better than those nasty 400's!!!
That really is a nice flat curve. Are you planning to increase the dosage to try to get the numbers even lower (into the 100's) or is this a perfect range for our diabetic babies?

I think these numbers look absolutely wonderful and wouldn't change a thing...

We are staying for a while at this level. Had her tighter on Caninsulin (90 - 198), but that was then and this is now! Besides...she is getting enough of all the testing....she needs a rest!!

Thks!!
