Oftentimes, I am amazed at how diligent the parents of diabetic pets are. Not only are you on top of your pet’s diabetes management, but you’re all so willing and wanting to learn more to keep your pets as happy and healthy as possible. Below are two exchanges I’ve recently had from pet owners that are clearly on top of what their diabetic pets need. Have a read. Maybe there is something you can grab from our interaction on fructosamine testing & feeding schedules and apply to how you are managing your sweetie!

When teaching during diabetes self- management sessions, I often get asked the same questions by multiple patients. I like to share what they are asking so you can learn too! Find out which beverage is best to drink when comparing regular soda or diet, 100% fruit juice, flavored, calorie free waters whether still or sparkling or just plain water. Learn the pros and cons. Understand the difference between prebiotics and probiotics. Discover food products that contain pre and probiotics. Determine if supplements should be taken or food. Review if you should be drinking energy drinks- either sugar or sugar free.

I get some great questions from clients. They inspire me with article ideas and keep me in tune with diabetic pet owners. I enjoy interacting with our readers, and sometimes the questions are worthy of a newsletter. I bet if one person has this question and takes the time to write me, there are likely lots of folks with a similar question. Let’s jump right in and talk about helping this itchy puppy!

"You know I’m always on the lookout for treatments for allergy dogs, especially diabetic allergy dogs, that don’t involve steroids. Remember that steroids cause insulin resistance amongst other unpleasant side effects. Steroids can derail a diabetic’s blood glucose regulation in a New York minute. Until recently, we didn’t have a lot of effective treatments for severely itchy diabetic dogs. We would use antihistamines, food trials, omega 3 fatty acids, avoidance of the allergen, etc. In general, veterinarians use immunosuppressive drugs if needed to give allergic dogs relief from itching and scratching. Immunosuppressive drugs include steroids and cyclosporine and more recently Apoquel." -Dr. Joi

Making a fitness commitment needs to be more than a vague statement that you will exercise more. It is important to state your specific goals and make a personal pledge that you will keep them. A recent study revealed that 30 minutes of exercise each day with a weight loss of 5 to 10 percent can decrease the progression of diabetes by up to 58 percent. Knowing the facts can help you stay focused and motivated.
