Diabetes management help in Anchorage
Let the team at Chester Valley Veterinary Hospital help you with diabetes management. To simplify the understanding of diabetes, imagine insulin as a key to a door found on all of our cells. Insulin is able to unlock the door, the sugars then go into the cells and are used for energy. There are two types of diabetes - Type I is a basic form of diabetes in which insulin is not produced in the body. Type II is a form of diabetes in which insulin is produced but the cells are resistant to its presence -think of the locks on the cell doors being blocked. Due to the advances of modern medicine, diabetics are able to be treated with daily doses of insulin, but as with many things in medicine, prognosis can be challenging to predict. Time is the only way to know how things will turn out for you and your pet. Many very happy diabetics live for years with no problems.
