The Real Problem!
most people who have cats with diabetes are only treating
the symptoms and not getting to the root of the problem. Furthermore,
many medications given to cats with diabetes are simply compounding
problems instead of getting to the root cause.
The best way to manage
your cat's diabetic condition is to address the actual cause.
make more sense? Let's look at what feline diabetes really
Other than the genes
your cat inherited, there are two primary causes of diabetes:
a long-term diet that has been high in carbohydrates and
2) nutritional deficiencies.
cat's body breaks down carbohydrates into sugar (glucose)
which then enters their blood stream. The more carbohydrates
consumed, the higher their blood sugar goes. In response,
their body produces insulin. Insulin's job is to push the
blood sugar into the cells.
surface of the cells in their body are insulin receptors,
which act like little doors that open and close to regulate
the inflow of blood sugar.
many years of consuming a high-carbohydrate diet, their cells
have been bombarded with so much insulin that these doors
begin to malfunction and shut down.
less doors open, their body needs to produce even more insulin
to push the glucose into the cells. More insulin causes even
more doors to close and as this vicious cycle continues, a
condition called "insulin resistance" sets
their body can no longer produce enough insulin to push the
blood sugar into the cells, diabetes results. It is simply
an extreme case of insulin resistance.
key point for you to understand is that your cat's energy,
wellness and longevity are primarily dependent on improving
the sensitivity of their cells to insulin - how well their
cells open and close the doors and allow the sugar to be cleared
from the blood.
the Bottom line?
feline diabetes is really a severe case of insulin resistance, the
solution to their condition is to find a way to increase the
sensitivity of their cells to insulin and help their body
get the sugar out of the blood and into the cells so it can
be metabolized and turned into energy. (This inability
to metabolize sugar is one of the reasons why most diabetic
cats are often sluggish and appear tired.)
Deadly Effects of Excess Insulin!
cat's "metabolism" is the food processing and energy
production system of their body. It is made up of extremely
fine-tuned internal processes.
is the master hormone of their metabolism. When it is out
of balance and their insulin levels are consistently elevated,
a long list of deadly complications are created:
* Hardening of the Arteries
* Damage to Artery Walls
* Increased Cholesterol Levels
* Vitamin & Mineral Deficiencies
* Kidney Disease
* Fat Burning Mechanism Turned Off
* Accumulation & Storage of Fat
* Weight Gain
In his best-selling book Protein Power, Dr. Michael Eades
insulin levels become too high... metabolic havoc ensues with
elevated blood pressure, elevated cholesterol and triglycerides,
diabetes, and obesity all trailing in its wake. These disorders
are merely symptoms of a single more basic disturbance
in metabolism, excess insulin and insulin resistance."
Deficiencies from excess insulin.
Science has shown
that excess insulin also causes your cat's body to become
deficient in many vitamins, minerals and other nutrients.
It's a proven fact that being deficient in these nutrients
is directly linked to and a cause of high blood sugar levels.
is essential to proper metabolism and maintaining safe sugar
levels. Excess insulin depletes your cat's chromium.
In Protein Power, Dr. Eades further states,
insulin receptor, the structure on the surfaces of your cells
that actually become resistant to insulin, requires chromium
to function properly. Deficiency of chromium is rampant -
it affects 90% of the American population - because a diet
high in starch and sugar puts a heavy demand on the insulin
system to handle the incoming carbohydrate load, and that
demand depletes chromium."
is critical to blood sugar metabolism and as the owner
of a diabetic cat, you can be pretty sure he or she is
severely deficient in this nutrient.
other nutrients are also depleted by excess insulin, which
are critical to biochemical processes in their bodies.
that you know how and why cats develop diabetes and
some of the consequences of not controlling their blood sugar
are your choices:

- You can use
a safe and effective way to help control your cat's blood
sugar with absolutely
NO SIDE EFFECTS!! - GUARANTEED!!
your cat's body has miraculous healing powers, is very resilient
and operates in a very intelligent manner. If you give your
cat the right fuel and the right nutrients, he or she will
respond very quickly. Some exercise also helps!
