    Hi all,
    Thanks in advance for any input. Daisy is almost 14, was diagnosed about 2 months ago. On Vetsulin, we have been able to maintain her for a while on a single unit in the AM due to diet change, and she was steady around 125-140's. This last week she has been steadily increasing and is back around 240. We haven't done anything different with the diet, and she is keeping these 200+#'s on 1.5-2 units 2x day. Her urine was clear from any signs of infection or crystal's.
    Ideas???
    Thanks!!

    Please post this on the main health forum where more people will see it. This is the meet and greet forum. :)

    Welcome! There a few reasons this could be happening. Please come to the Main Health Forum where, as Kris said, more people will see your question. It sounds like you are home testing (that’s great!) and if you can set up our spreadsheet that will really help us to see what’s going on.

    If you need help setting it up, just ask

    Welcome to you both.

    If you haven't already done so I suggest getting Daisy checked over by her vet, with an eye to whether she might have any infection going on (diabetics are more prone to infections) and also get the vet to check her teeth and gums (gingivitis is a frequent culprit).

    I am in the same boat. Had preshots in the 100's for weeks now She's yellows. Annoying.
