We hope 21:06, 7 Jan 2006 (UTC) When we had the weak vial of Iletin II Lente, this inflamation was very easily seen. Lucky's bg's had risen enough to cause visible (panting) post-prandial symptoms as well. As we treated him with the old vial of Iletin II Lente (more potent than the flawed, new one) until a replacement vial could be obtained, the eye irritation lessened, along with the post-prandial panting, with each dose of more potent insulin. Eyes returned to non-irritated status and post-prandial panting ceased when bg control was re-established.
Par. on eye inflammation confusingEdit
Quote: Both revert to no inflammation when blood glucose levels are normal; lessening of inflammation visible as the bg's go down or up. This symptom was discovered and verified--first with the individual dog and then with all diabetic dogs in the veterinary practice. All presented with the same symptoms for hyperglycemia, hypoglycemia, and euglycemia.
Changed wording to try to avoid confusion. I am now sure that what it really meant is that the symptoms were the same across the group of dogs...all had brighter red inflammation for hyperglycemia, less bright inflammation for hypoglycemia and none for euglycemia.
But this could sound as if it were saying that the symptoms were exactly the same for hyperglycemia, hypoglycemia, and euglycemia --even though that mades no sense and contradicted what had come before it. Cheri
