Re: Bea's blood work from Cornell

Hi Michele

Want to second Maggie's recommendations.  I would hold of on riding her until you know more.  Hand walks would be good if she remains comfortable.

Would be really interested in hearing more from your vet and Cornell about your results.  IMO she's a good example of not needing the OST to show she's IR.  Her baseline insulin/glucose and  eACTH would have shown her condition without the risk of the glucose challenge.

Hang in there.  With practice it gets easier in a short time.

 It's good that the fatty puffs above her eyes are gone.  Can you send us some photos of her feet?
