Determining Pergolide Dose
Just got my October test results
ACTH - 53.4 (Cornell)
Insulin - 16.02 (Cornell)
Glucose - 106 (meter)
G/I ratio - 6.62 (compensated IR)
RISQ - 0.25 (compensated IR)
My question is should I go up 1 mg or 2 mg of pergolide? I know 53.4 is over the limit even for August thru October but the lowest I have gotten her ACTH in the past three years is 34.0 which was last April. I was jumping for joy over that. I'm thinking 2 mg and I will retest in April to see where we are. I just need reassurance that I'm thinking right. My vet says it is up to me.
On a good note about my vet, when he faxed me Amber's test results he also faxed me a print out of where he went to the IR calculator and plugged the numbers in. Maybe he does listen to me after all.
