Re: Is This Alright For A Cushings or IR Horse?

The Chasteberry at least might help with an early Cushings *if* the
dose is correct. If it's not, could make things worse. It's a
dopaminergic effect that helps though, not the phytoestrogens.
Phytoestrogen effects in Cushings are basically unknown so can't
comment on the other two sources of these. The chromium and Momordica
are to lower blood sugar. They do not improve insulin sensitivity and
aren't indicated unless your horse is frankly diabetic (elevated blood
sugar), in which case you probably ought to be thinking pergolide
anyway.
