As an animal owner there are many potential health issues that you may worry about. Often these concerns will focus around your pet being injured in an accident or sustaining damage due to some other external influence rather than developing a disease.
Today we are going to inform you about diabetes and what it can mean for you and your pet should they develop it. If you want to donate money for pets health care then you can look for:
Insulin is a hormone that needs to be present in order for glucose in the blood to enter the cells of the body giving them energy.
Diabetes is when a pet cannot produce insulin or the body does not allow them to use insulin properly. There are two types of this disease and they are known as type 1 and type 2.
This occurs when the pancreas does not produce any insulin. The lack of insulin means that the cells cannot absorb any glucose which in turn means there is a high amount of glucose in the blood.
This surfaces when the insulin that is produced by the pancreas is less efficient at moving glucose out of the blood and into the cells. Some of the glucose is absorbed, just not as effectively as a pet with normal insulin efficiency; again, causing a high level of glucose to remain in the blood.
There are a number of signs that can indicate your pet may have diabetes. Urinating and drinking much more frequently are both key symptoms.
