Newly diagnosed with diabetes (3wks). We can't get blood

Customer Question

Newly diagnosed with diabetes (3wks). We can't get blood sugar below 400. Dosage has been upped from 4 to 6 units twice a day. Did a curve all day. Low of 462 and now 710. Suggestions?
JA: I'm sorry to hear that. I'm sure the Veterinarian can help with the diabetes. What is the dog's name?
Customer: Katie
JA: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Katie?
Customer: Gastrointestinal issues also so high fiber diet along with the insulin isn't possible. Many urinary track infections, twice a year at least. She is a King Charles Spaniel 5 yrs old.
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Veterinarian about your situation and connect you two.
