Hills Prescription Diet Feline M/D is a nutritional option to manage overweight feline patients or those that suffer from Diabetes. It works with the cat's unique metabolism to reduce body weight and increase muscle mass without causing excessive stools.
Finding the right solution for weight loss means that every overweight cat has the opportunity to improve its quality of life. Along with an increased risk of serious health problems, such as heart disease, arthritis and liver disease, obese cats are four times more likely to develop diabetes mellitus.
Traditional calorie restriction works effectively for many cats; however, like humans, some cats respond better to a metabolic approach for weight loss. This approach is based on significantly restricting carbohydrate levels to achieve weight loss, by switching metabolism to the utilisation of stored fat as the main source of energy.
Experts agree that low carbohydrate, high protein diets are beneficial for cats with diabetes mellitus. Diet Feline M/D combines these features with those of increased fibre to better manage diabetic cats by better regulation of blood glucose levels, reduced levels of total cholesterol, improved insulin sensitivity, and up to 50% lower insulin requirement. Around one third of cats are able to discontinue insulin therapy completely.
