Check out Diabetic Cat Care for hlelp

My cat went into remission on lantus with help from diabeticcatcare.com. Everyone there is very friendly and helpful and they work with all insulins. They follow Dr. Hodgkin's Tight Regulation protocol that doses to a scale based on testing. Home test and save yourself a bundle. The scale approach is not tied to food. Is how humans treat their diabetes and just makes sense to dose to scale over a static dose twice a day. No ones blood sugar stays the same so using a scale gives insulin according to what is needed and is therefore a much safer approach. A high protein, low carb, wet (canned) diet (<10%carbs) w/o veggies or wheat, or soy, or fruits is what is needed to protect a cat from a clinical hypo and feeding dry high carb food is what caused the diabetes in the first place

What Do You Feed Your Diabetic Dog?

My 11 year old pug mix has diabetes. She's been on insulin for about a year and is doing great.
Before being diagnosed with diabetes, she ate a mix of GO Natural Grain Free and Innovo Evo plus steamed veggies.
My vet insists the best food for her now is Hills Prescription W/D, but I read at dogfoodanalysis [dot] com that Hills Prescription is a low quality dog food which uses corn, meat by products, soybean meal and has a lot of chemical preservatives.
Since I have her glucose levels under control, I don't want to experiment with her diet too much, but I would like to feed her a better quality food.
Any feedback or suggestions?

Recipes for diabetics...

This website has recipes for diabetics. It even gives nutritional information and you can search for recipes by whatever you have on hand or is on sale:
Good diabetes information and recipes here too (Allrecipes is one of my favorite):
You're lucky you live in LA - with all of the Mexican grocery stores, it should be easy to get black, pinto and red beans in bulk bags!
Also, if you like spicy food, experiment with different hot sauces

Why you should eat fruit -- not drink it -- to lower diabetes risk  — Today.com
Consuming whole fruits at least three times a week may lower your risk of developing type 2 diabetes, according to a new long-term study published Thursday in the British Medical Journal.

    I am diabetic and I am unsure how many carbs I can actually eat. I am finding that anything over 15 grams of carbs I wont eat. how much is too much?

    • Learning to count your carbohydrate intake is critical for nutrition in diabetes and to getting better blood sugar control. Controlling the number of carbohydrates you eat each day will help you control not only your blood sugar, but it will also help with weight control. A good place to start f … /> Concentrating on how many carbohydrates you are eating can cause you to pay little attention to how much protein and fat you are eating. It is important to balance your diet with a proper portion of protein and fats. A single serving of protein per meal is recommended.
      Lots of luck!
