I am a caregiver but the diabetic is my dog. I don't know if I should have joined this site but it seems very informative. He is 11 years old and now has lost his sight. His glucose was over 400 for a couple of months and the lowest we have been able to get it is 149 but it took 9 months to get that number and only once. I am having a hard time finding dog treats without added sugars of any kind. My vet is very helpful but I am always looking for more help and information that can help. It will be 1 year now since he was diagnosed, we started at 4 units of Humilin N and now have leveled out at 12 1/2 units twice a day. My problems with my dog are nothing compared to what all of you have to go through so I just want to thank you for letting my join so I can hopefully become a better caregiver.
