ATTENTION: The use of this food usually improves the cat's sensitivity to insulin. Monitoring of blood glucose is recommended to adjust for a lower dose of insulin.
The insulinotropic activity of arginine facilitates the regeneration of pancreatic activity and reduces the need for exogenous insulin. Lutein and antioxidants help increase the cat's sensitivity to insulin.
Gestation, lactation, growth.
Varies depending on blood glucose monitoring. Although diabetes mellitus may be reversible in cats, lifelong dietary management minimizes the risk of recurrence.
Moderate energy intake promotes optimal body composition and minimizes insulin resistance associated with being overweight.
A high level of protein helps reduce the net energy intake and also ensures a continuous and progressive source of glucose (glycogenesis).
The mixture of cereals with a low glycemic index (barley, corn) together with the gelling action of the Psyllium mucilages, cause a decrease in postprandial hyperglycemia.
Chondroprotectants (glucosamine and chondroitin sulfate) are involved in minimizing the associated risk of joint disease in the diabetic cat, who is often elderly and/or overweight.
