According to recent statistics diabetes has become increasingly common in cats in the last ten years. Something is very wrong!
Fat cats risk becoming diabetic, according to more and more observations:
While the exact incidence is unknown, the number of diabetic cats is increasing at an alarming rate due to the tremendous increase in the number of overweight and obese cats.
Cats that eat cheap cat food based on wheat, oats, rice and corn (carbohydrates) – despite being genetically adapted meat eaters – risk becoming fat AND getting diabetes.
Food with a lot of easily digested carbohydrates may namely raise both the cat’s blood sugar and shoot the fat-storing hormone insulin levels through the roof. The cat will become both sick and fat from new industrial foods filled with easily digested carbohydrates. Just like we do.
