Re: Introduction for a New Cushing's Horse Owner!

Hi Mona,

His numbers dropped because there was no food being processed and therefore the glucose and insulin would predictably be lower. This is not a normal situation for horses as they are not designed to be meal-fed, they are designed to be trickle feeders, with small amounts of food almost constantly being processed. The fasting protocols are left-over from human testing protocols because humans are a meal-fed species. The lower numbers are a false "lowering" of the values.

Do you have a case history for your boy? If so, would you please provide the link. If not, please fill one out on ECHistory8, our storage sister-site:

You'll need to join but that is quick.

What were the latest values? What were the the past numbers?

Also as k that you add your general location and year of joining when you post so we can answer your questions more fully.
