Hello all, I will preface this by saying I'm getting rather exhausted from this marathon... It literally does not matter what I do, absolutely nothing is helping. I upped Lou's dose from 1.5 u to 1.75. I was sure we'd see some action (having seen barely any on the 1.5u) on the increased dose, but "shockingly" (sarcasm intended), I have seen absolutely nothing going on at the higher dose. It has been 3 days now, and today was the first day I could actually test during the day, and apparently the insulin only kept him level... no major decreases. Last night and today he has been completely ravenous... I can't seem to feed him enough, but I'm assuming it is also affecting his numbers. I honestly feel like I need to up his dose again, but I have to admit to being utterly flabbergasted at how this guy could be regulated right out the gate, was soo close to remission, and now I CANNOT get him out of the *&#^$% yellows and pinks. So a couple of questions before I lose my cool (Don't mind me: I'm having a moment ): Excepting the return of his FD symptoms (increased appetite, etc.), would it be wildly crazy of me to take him to the vet just to see if something is wrong? Nothing obvious is going on, but I feel like SOMETHING has to be causing his high numbers that no longer respond properly to insulin. I figured it wouldn't hurt to have her really check his teeth and give him an overall look to see if she can see something. It's a long shot, but I feel like I need to do something. How long do I need to hold this 1.75 dose? I understand why we backtracked originally, but we're right back to the previous problem of him spending far too much time at these high numbers. I don't want to jump the gun, but I am getting leery of staying at a dose that doesn't seem to work. Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated at this time. Thanks in advance.
