Subject: Re: proglycem use for insulinoma

Just from personal experience, I used proglycem on two different
ferrets and the results were identical... no increase in blood
glucose levels. So it seems safe to say it doesn't work in every
case. Is it worth a try? Definitely, if pred can no longer control
the low levels. How much pred is he getting?
