Re: Diet adjustments for Lala- looking for feedback

Eleanor Kellon, VMD

 You're doing fine with feeding and it shows in the insulin but she doesn't need  any selenium with the cubes. You can keep her at that level unless she loses too much weight.

As for Thyro-L (show to your vet)

Thyro-L does NOT influence insulin action/responsiveness. It only helps with weight loss.

A quote from this thesis by a student of Dr. Frank's, who was also her advisor:

" Levothyroxine induces weight loss and reduces neck circumference in horses with EMS when animals are kept on a weight maintenance diet, but does not influence glucose dynamics or insulin sensitivity. " 

Read pages 74 to 84.
