Zeke the Diabetic Dog Continues to be Hypoglycemic

After Zekes hypoglocemic episode a few weeks ago our veterinarian lowered his NPH dosage to 13 units twice day.  He had previously been on 15 since January.  We  returned to his veterinarian last week to have his blood glucose checked.   It was 50 which is too low.   Incidentally it was also 50 when he was at 15 units after the major hypoglycemic incident a few weeks ago.  So she lowered his NPH dose to 11 units.  At 11 units Zeke was drinking too much water and waking me up at night to go outside. This reminded me of his early days of being diagnosed with dog diabetes when I was trying to get his blood glucose levels regulated.  So I increased his dose to 12 and he seems to be doing well  He will return to the veterinarian next week to have his blood sugar checked again.  Hopefully his blood glucose will be in a more normal range around 100 - 120.
