A Dog’s Victory

Obviously one of the coolest parts about the SHAPE Program is how fast people are able to come off their insulin and reduce their diabetic medication. So, we had a husband and a wife start the SHAPE Program last Monday, and they came in for their first follow-up yesterday. We answered all their questions that came up, and at the end, they said, “Oh, we almost forgot to tell you…we had to lower our dog’s insulin medication.” I said, “What do you mean?” They replied that their dog always eats their table scraps, and now with them eating healthier food, their dog is eating healthy table scraps, so they’ve been able to reduce his insulin. I just found this to be too great and have been sharing it with everyone!
