Oh how modern veterinary medicine has changed for the better. I remember back when I was trying to get into vet school in the mid 1980’s. Oregon State University required I had a small quota of hours before applying, so I volunteered one summer at a mixed animal practice in Woodburn, Oregon. They treated llamas and goats and dairy cows along with dogs and cats. It was a regular James Herriott kind of clinic. Today, I’m here in Molalla, Oregon, visiting my mom this week and I think back to that summer. How veterinary practice was just 30 years ago is vastly different than veterinary practice is in modern times.

I think it’s easier for human diabetics to make sound nutritional choices for themselves than for their diabetic pets. Eating a colorful salad is clearly a better choice than eating a greasy burger on a thick white bun. Eating broccoli is clearly a better choice than having a cupcake. You can expect simple carbs like white rice, candy, soda and bread to cause a spike in the blood sugar. And yet, there are subtle sneaky sources of simple carbs that may slide under the radar such as sugar in salad dressings or sauces. Pet Diabetes Diet choices can be different.

Having diabetes or another chronic condition should make you think more about proper planning. Diabetes can influence your immune system, especially when blood sugars are out of control, increasing the risk of infection. According to the CDC, “food poisoning is one of the most common maladies in the US. About 1 in 6 people get sick by consuming contaminated foods. This is about 48 million people.” Food poisoning tends to increase during the spring and summer months when more foods are taken outdoors and can be affected by the high heat and humidity with improper handling. To stay healthy and enjoy all of your outdoor cooking and grilling events, consider some of these guidelines to make your summer more carefree and outdoor friendly when you have diabetes.

Over 10 million people in the U.S. complain about bloating and stomach issues, which may be corrected by a few simple changes. Bloating which is “air in the intestines”, causes pain, discomfort and a stuffed feeling. Bloating has several causes including poor diets choices such as over-indulging in fatty and salty foods, the inability to digest food properly, thyroid issues, monthly periods, stress and anxiety, allergies, medications and various pollutants. Although bloating is temporary, it can make you feel extremely uncomfortable.
