Diabetes in cats – Dr. Justine Lee
If your cat was just diagnosed withdiabetes don’t fretit’s totally treatable but it doesrequire more frequent veterinary visitswith diabetes your cat’s blood sugar istoo elevated and the reason why isbecause the pancreas or the organdoesn’t produce enough insulin. That’swhy you as a cat owner have to give thatinsulin twice a day. Now, this soundsintimidating initially but I promise youit’s really easy to do once you get usedto it. The reason why we have to give theinsulin is because that pushes the sugarinto your cat cells so it’s really important. If you ever notice that your cat iseating more, getting overweight buturinating a lot and having huge clumpsin the litter box those are classicsigns for diabetes. Get to a vet rightaway. The sooner we diagnose diabetes theeasier and less expensive it is to treat.
