Re: Check out these curves ! (glucose - not great)

High protein diets seem to be correlated to rebound . My theory is the slow digestion of it allows little blood sugar to work with the strength of injected insulin . If insulin isn't fed the body may...

Re: Check out these curves ! (glucose - not great)

Looks like classic rebound to me and it's very consistent . When blood sugar dips below a 100 you get a big spike . If this has been going on for awhile it maybe difficult to settle the body down ....

Re: Newbie needing help

Injecting into the muscle acts as a fast acting insulin . Not recommended as you can't be sure of the result and with a dog having low sugar that's not a good idea
