Dec, one way to help control his blood sugar is to put him on an organic diet that YOU prepare yourself. There are so many sites out there for this, I've lost track of it. Many dog food companies actually DO use corn syrup/sweetener in their recipes, so getting rid of those is a great first step to keeping your beloved boy healthier and happier. It also has some fringe benefits, such as a shinier coat, more energy and disease resistance, and general peace of mind for the dog. Best wishes to your boy!

Even if you don't want to go organic, just getting rid of the sweeteners and controlling the carbs should help his diabetes.  I'd say it's worth the effort!

He won't eat it in peanut butter? Yeah, it's got a bit of sweetener but it also has some decent protein with the added gain of being harder to spit out. Iams is good, but still, they're a commercial company out to make a buck and that includes putting stuff in there our fur people don't need. Heck, like miros said, you don't have to go organic, just fresh! He'd have a good many benefits from it, and so would you. Usually, when you take on that kind of diet for your pet, you start to fix fresh food yourself and stop consuming a bunch of junk food... LOL! The things we do for our fur babies, right?

Things to look for when feeding your dog:

Avoid sugar. Keep in mind, carbohydrates are converted into glucose during the digestion process, so look at the carbs, too. Dry dog food and the wet dog food in the cellophane packs are the worst for sugar and carbs. If you *have* to give your dog a commercially manufactured food, the best choice is a good quality canned food. The best way to go is to make his food yourself. This way you can know exactly what he is eating and won't be caught by surprise by something a company has snuck into their product. Choose a low-fat food as well, since a high-fat diet can add stress to an already stressed out pancreas. Another good thing to remember is grains are carbohydrates. Certain grains are beneficial in helping keep insulin levels down, like rice, millet and oats. Cornmeal is good too, but some dogs have allergic reactions. In spite of the benefits, it's important to keep these to a minimum, because of the carb factor.

Adding a teaspoon of regular brewer's yeast to Louger's food will be helpful. It naturally contains a glucose-tolerance factor helpful in assisting the body to use blood sugar more efficiently. Vitamin E is good too. It reduces the body's need for insulin.

Look for high protein foods rich in soluble fibre and low in fat, carbohydrates, sodium and saccharides. Excellent alternatives are foods low on the glycemic index. This is why it is ultimately best to take control of his diet and make his food yourself. Some can be given to him raw but there are some food he'll have to eat cooked. It will take some research, but, in the end, it will be worth it and increase Louger's longevity.

There are eye drops for high pressure in the eyes.  Not sure if you can use them on dogs, or if your dog is trusting enough to let you use them on him!  They're expensive too.

It sounds like the high pressure (glaucoma) contributed to his blindness by damaging his retinas.

Sounds like they hurt him, the poor guy, they really must be sensitive. Brewers yeast is also a great protein source and it has the added side effect that fleas cannot seem to abide the taste of it, so they leave the animal alone and stop biting... I found that out with my cats some years ago, they eat it like Pixie Stix and do they ever slobber when I give it to them. Cats ain't supposed to slobber!! Cheesy
