Signs your horse may be insulin resistant:
- Laminitis- Acute or chronic. Repeat episodes over the years, pasture turnout stopped but still happens, secondary to Cushing’s disease, more often in ponies, occurs in the middle of winter when there is no grass around. The horse only gets hay and no grain and still happens.
- Overweight- Either by diet, lack of exercise, or genetics. 25% of horses with Insulin Resistance due to genetics. On no grain or little grain and stays big, exercise and still big. Cresty neck often seen.
- Cushing’s- 2 ways Insulin Resistance is linked with Cushing’s:
1. Many with diagnosed Cushing’s also have Insulin Resistance, but this second condition is not diagnosed , so on Pergolide but still does not do well.
2. Recent study shows Cushing’s in horses is massively under diagnosed, so if these are missed, then more are missed with both Cushing’s and Insulin Resistance.
- Age- As horses get older, they lose muscle and gain fat. Fat production goes way up in Insulin Resistance because insulin makes fat and fat produces toxins leading to an increase in insulin. Also as horses age, Cushing’s incidence goes up.
- Certain Breeds- Breeds that were designed for a rugged existence seem to be more susceptible due to today’s easier surroundings. These breeds include Quarter Horses, Morgans, Paso Finos, Mustangs, Pony breeds, Tennessee Walkers and Rocky Mountain horses.
- Fatigue- Cannot exercise as well as in the past. They become dull and resist riders.
- Genetics- Often the mare or stallion had Insulin Resistance and now the offspring begin to show signs.
- History Behind the Horse- The previous owner warns the new owner that the animal must live on a dirt lot and never be turned out. They are the horses that are fed very little food and stay ” fat on air” Sometimes Pergolide helped in the past but is no longer effective.
- Fall/Winter Foot Pain- Even with no grass in sight, the feet get sore. Less exercise, loss of fresh grass, vitamins/magnesium, cold stress, cortisol increase, seasonal ACTH increase, longer fasting periods between food intake all contribute.
- Abnormally Foot Sore- After routine trimmings by farrier. Takes several days after scheduled trimmings to recover soundness. This is an Insulin problem not a bad trim job. The farrier is the key to a successful program.
- Genetic Lock- Diet/exercise is not controlling Insulin. Owners have tried multiple management techniques but the horse is still foot sore, has repeat laminitis, can’t be turned out on grass, and stays big on little food. Also the horse is a candidate for future problems instead of waiting for the problem to occur.
Helps fight laminar injury and stops foot pain caused by seasonal factors:
- Spring- New grass
- Summer- Heat
- Fall- Frosty grass
- Winter- Hard, frozen grounD
