Re: when to start pergolide


Hi Sherry,

At what level ACTH does the group generally recommend starting pergolide? I know Jack needs it, but is it anything over 35 during seasonal rise or a certain number? Does it matter if symptoms are present or not? We've been doing a bit more testing at the vet hospital at which I work so I'm curious. 

Does time of day matter for the blood draw (ie 4 hours after eating) if we're just doing ACTH and not insulin & glucose?
