Insulin is an essential hormone of the body, needed to aid in cellular functions. In the body, insulin allows glucose to enter the cells which is the key component for manufacturing energy. Insulin, if allowed into the cell, will allow breakdown of fatty acids, proteins, and glycogen to be used by the body. The absence of insulin entering the cells, the glucose will build up in the blood causing an overload to the kidneys. Diabetes mellitus is characterized by an absence of insulin which is normally produced by the endocrine system of the pancreas.
There are two subcategories for diabetes; insulin deficient diabetes and insulin resistant diabetes. Insulin resistant diabetes is usually caused by a hormonal drug or medical condition which transforms the body to resist the needed insulin. Insulin deficient diabetes is a destruction of the cells which produce the insulin; these cells are part of the pancreas.

QUESTIONS FOR MY VET
1.Why are the U-40 syringes only used in felines?
Syringes are made to coincide with a pet’s size. The size of the syringe also matches the size of the needle. A syringe made for a large dog, for example, would be too large for a cat.
2. What would happen if I used a larger needle that the U-40?
Injected under the skin with a large syringe could cause bruising, pain, bleeding, and accidental injection to a nerve or major blood vessel.
3. Could I reuse a syringe to save money?
Never re-use syringes. After injecting your cat, blood clots within the tip of the needle. This blood clot re-entering the cat’s body can cause great complications. This process could also lead to infection.
4. Why do syringes need to be disposed of in a specialized container?
The contents which remain in the syringe after injection can be hazardous to other animals if disposed of within the trash.
5. While injecting my cat, some of her blood entered a cut I had on my hand. So I need to be aware of blood transmitted disease?
Unless your cat has rabies, you do not need to be concerned. Unlike the human world, blood cannot harm humans even if it is contaminated. On a side note; a pet’s urine can harm humans if disease is present.
6. How does my veterinarian evaluate a Diabetic condition?
Clinical signs, urinary and blood analysis will determine a diabetic condition. An enlarged liver can also point to Diabetes.
7. Aside from the insulin injections, what else will I need to chance to aid my cat’s Diabetes?
Veterinarians commonly prescribe a high fiber diet for Diabetic cats.

Administer injections every day at the same time, coinciding with meals.
