My ****z-su is 15 years old. Has been diabetic for about 4 years, he is also blind now. He has been doing very well, was on 8 units of insulin 2x a day. He slept most of the time, the started to shake in afternoon. I increased his feedings to incluse 4 meals instead of 2. Then lowered his insulin to 6 units now, and also I have been checking his urine daily, no glucose at all. He seemed better and actually was awake more, and more active, now just noticed a little shakey at mid morning. Is this an insulin reaction or to much sugar reaction? Or something new with his age. I make chicken and brown rice for him, supplements wit a small amout of nutrish nuggets, and dried chicken strips for treat snack at night. Could he possibly not need insulin any more? Should I try to lower it again?
