Re: The IR blues...


Hi Kerry,
You asked if 8 years old is too young for PPID?  The answer is no.  In the Pergolide Dosage Database, there is an Age of Diagnosis Chart (use the Database Statistics link in the Database then scroll down).

In that chart it shows 5 equines who were diagnosed at the age of 8 and under.  

two were aged 6, one was 7 and two more were 8.   

Perhaps the other volunteers may remember other IR horses on tight diets that needed extremely low sugar/starch feed.  

Yes do update the case history -  you - or the volunteers- may find a clue to help bring down that insulin.  
Hang in there Kerry!
