What can I say! I am preparing for a Christmas DKA ?
Yeah that makes sense. I think. I just get confused with the dextrose etc.
So say you’ve been using your neutral insulin and the BG goes below 5.5 and so you stop the insulin and start dextrose – if everything else is stabilising nicely and the animal starts eating, would you wait for the BG to come up again before you start long-acting insulin?
Thanks Scott!

P.S. I know I need to get a life!
