Royal Canin Vet Cat Diabetic 12x100gm

The Royal Canin Diabetic cat food is formulated to help regulate blood glucose levels in adult cats with diabetes.

Animals with diabetes are not able to regulate their blood glucose (sugar) levels normally due to insufficient levels of insulin.

Insulin is a hormone released from the pancreas, that signals to the cells of the body to take in glucose to use as energy.

When there is not enough insulin produced by the pancreas or the cells become insulin resistant, the glucose remains in the blood causing hyperglycemia (high blood glucose).

In cats, diabetes appears to be similar in character to Type 2 diabetes in humans.

There appears to be both a failure of the pancreas to release enough insulin & a degree of insulin resistance in the cells of the body.

Obesity plays a big part in increasing the risk of a cat developing diabetes.

Obese cats are 3.9 times more likely to develop diabetes.

This is thought to be because the fatty tissue of the body acts like an organ in its own right, releasing hormones that alter metabolism & contribute to insulin resistance.

Genetics can also increase the risk of a cat developing diabetes.
