Meet Payton SDiT

Tuesday, May 03, 2016

This is my husband's seizure response dog Payton, he's been a great help to him. On top of keeping him active he's also getting him outside and walking so he's not feeling confined to the house. It's also ment I'm getting less sleep because I end up getting up earlier to take him for a morning walk to give him the necessary break from my husband to be just a dog so to speak. Upside I'm getting in 5k a day at a minimum - normally higher I'm starting to average 12k steps just walking him alone never mind outside of that in a day. Down side I'm in freaking pain in my lower back and hips and it's only getting worse not better. Upside morning glucose levels are hypo range most mornings so I've been ajusting my basel insulin lower - was on 100 units at bedtime now taking 50 units. Humalog wise I've gone from a 1:5 ratio to 1:30 ratio = less insulin resistance = more insulin sensitive instead.
