Helps regulate glucose intake (diabetes mellitus)
Although diabetes has an incidence of around 0.2% of the population, it requires lifelong treatment. Of the 2 types of diabetes, the one with the highest incidence in dogs is type 1, which affects insulin production, with type 2 being more frequent in cats. The propensity for the onset of diabetes is accentuated in older dogs. The identification of this pathology is not always easy, so checking whether polydipsia, polyuria, polyphagia appear and observing weight loss and lethargy are indicators to follow, although it is essential to carry out veterinary tests. It is comforting to know that a dog with this condition and the correct treatment: exercise, diet and insulin-therapy has a life expectancy similar to that of a healthy dog.
An effective diet in the regulation of glucose intake must contain a low level of sugars, with the aim of minimizing postprandial glycemia. The nutritional management of glycemia falls largely on fiber, whether soluble or insoluble, since it allows regulating transit, energy density and, in the case of fermentables, better glucose tolerance. A level of adequate fats and to a lesser extent the protein content is also important, although a higher content than in a standard diet is recommended as a measure to regulate the intake of fats and carbohydrates.
Again, supplementation with probiotics is very interesting, since type 1 diabetes is characterized by the destruction of insulin-producing B cells and is autoimmune in nature, and the benefit that these provide due to their immunomodulatory effect is being studied. and therefore the development of type 1 diabetes mellitus.
