Feline diabetes – managing your cat’s diabetes with their food
May 24, 2021
Has your cat been diagnosed with diabetes? An important aspect of feline diabetes management is your cat’s diet. Your cat’s food should contain a quality source of protein and be low in carbohydrates. Managing your cat’s diet helps to control the fluctuations of glucose in your cat’s body. This is done by offering their meal at the same time each day. It’s also managed by offering the same amount of food at each meal. Managing glucose fluctuations will reduce the symptoms of diabetes in your cat.
In female cats, hormones can also play a part. If your cat is female and has been diagnosed with diabetes, the vet may recommend that you have your cat spayed. Progesterone can interfere with the normal action of insulin. Spaying your cat will remove this influence and help to improve the control of the disease. Download our information leaflet on diabetes to find out more about the symptoms and the treatment for diabetes.
