Re: Insulin:Glucose ratio

Eleanor Kellon, VMD

The VA Polytechic pony study gives us guidelines on normal insulins for horses on pasture:

Equine Cushings and Insulin Resistance


Variations by few points shouldn't cause any concern if the horse has no symptoms.

It's important to realize that normal insulin depends on the diet.  If on constant intake of pasture or hay only, that's one thing.  If within a few hours of a grain meal, that's something else entirely for what is "normal".
