Why do we measure Adiponectin in EMS cases?

How do I perform a Karo Light Corn Syrup dynamic test to assessing insulin dysregulation?

Our three medicine specialists are always happy to hear from vets in practice with queries on the investigation and management of laminitis cases, and the development of practice guidelines on endocrine screening of acute and chronic laminitis cases – please feel to email them with any queries:  Andy and Jamie.

There is an excellent resource for investigating endocrinopathic laminitis hosted by Dr Nick Frank at the Cummings School of Veterinary Medicine at Tufts University.  The articles are written by the Equine Endocrine Group; a group of researchers and clinicians dedicated to advancing our understanding of endocrine disorders in horses.  The website has wonderful user-friendly summaries of current research on EMS and PPID that are regularly updated with current evidence and can be easily integrated into practice.

Please find below some useful downloads for submissions to the Laboratory.  If you have any further queries with regards to submissions, packaging or address labels, please feel free to contact our Laboratory by email at  or by phone: 01428 729509.
