Abstract

There is interest in increasing remission rates among cats diagnosed with diabetes mellitus (DM). The question is, how can diabetic cats best be treated to enhance the possibility of resolving their hyperglycemia and eliminating their need for insulin administration via injection? Several factors-including effective insulin therapy-can contribute to the potential for remission. Insulins role involves controlling hyperglycemia to a degree that allows recoverable (viable) pancreatic β cells to produce sufficient endogenous insulin to maintain normoglycemia.
