Royal Canin Diabetic is a complete dietetic food for cats formulated to regulate the supply of glucose (Diabetes Mellitus). This food contains a low level of rapidly digestible carbohydrates.
A moderate energy intake promotes an optimal body composition and minimises insulin resistance associated with being overweight
Mixing cereals of low glycemic index (barley, corn) in conjunction with the gelling action of psyllium mucilages reduces postpandrial hyperglycemia
A high protein content helps reduce the net energy supply and also ensures a prolonged and progressive glucose supply (gluconeogenesis)
The chondroprotective elements (glucosamine and chondroitin sulphate) play a role in minimising the associated risk of joint disease in the diabetic cat which is often old and/or overweight
The insulinotropic activity of arginine facilitates pancreatic activity regeneration and reduces the exogenous insulin requirement. Lutein and antioxidants contribute to increase the cat’s sensitivity to insulin. (Evans et al, 2003)
