Re: Seasonal Rise Question Based On New ACTH, Insulin And Leptin Blood Work
Also keep in mind that leptin values will elevate when you start an exercise program (or increase the intensity) and that takes a bit of time to settle down again.
Insulin does fluctuate all the time and your previous result was in April whereas the new one is in Aug. All horses become more insulin resistant as part of the seasonal rise so a small increase isn't unexpected now. If he is doing well, no other signs that there's anything wrong, then just keep things tight and keep doing what you're doing cuz it's obviously working.
