...."I really don't feel like going downstairs to dig up paperwork but whatever the normal range for insulin and sugar were, he was within those. I would think all labs post the normal ranges as well as test results. Even my own annual bloodwork does."....
FYI--every lab has different parameters of "normal" for insulin & glucose (ie, Cornell's cut-off for "normal" equine insulin is 40uU/mL whereas Antech, one of the most widely used veterinary labs used in the US, has a "normal" cut-off of 20uU/mL for insulin). This group believes a truly normal non-fasted insulin should be less than 10uU/mL. So, if you ever do 'feel like' digging up your supposedly "normal" results, it might in fact be to Chance's benefit & longevity to do so because dying of laminitis at 34 is as excruciatingly painful as it is at any other age.
