He may well be early PPID but at 1000lbs he's overweight and more likely to be IR and his insulin results reflect that.  If nothing is going to change in his management there's nothing you can actually do about it though.

thank you sherry. in my heart , i am his owner but i gave him t to  diana about 4 years ago.   i had thought he would be better managed  with lots of riding mostly trail, due to many changes in her life it has not happened.  i will continue to see him and hope for the best.. his weight is misleading,  under all his winter fur he is quite ribby,  history of tape worms so am working on better deworming.  the vet is not really into insulin/ppid care unless it is a quick fix with prascend.  thank you for your input  best of hopes for whisper.  daisy, tiko, whisper
