Re: RePost - high insulin from other sources
I need opinions before I test. Bottom line questions: For a test at 8am, do I feed hay, in addition to her usual 5 lbs that lasts 1.5 hours in a net, the evening before we test? I usually feed between 10pm and midnight.toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
Do I give hay in the am, as usual at 6:30am, before her test? Based on the info below (and what I read by Dr. K that I can't find again)I think not.
Or, is better to test at a different time of day? For example, remove hay at 9am and test at 1pm?
Or, for my purposes, would it best to go back to the other standard which I believe is a flake of hay at 10pm and draw blood in the am before feeding anything?
Again, I just need a method that can be consistent and comparable to a standard. I understand the poly tech way is a ratio of her numbers. But we do compare that ratio to others. So, I need to be sure I'm operating within the protocol.
I appreciate your help because I really am not clear. Sadly, I'm a very linear thinker ... please bear with me.
Thank you Lavina. I recently found in the info you include below about non-fasting in an article or post by Dr. K. Now, I can't find my way back to that info and it was really good. Can you direct me back that info?
