Insulin injections are the preferred method of managing diabetes in cats. Figure 1: To administer an injection, pull the loose skin between the shoulder blades with one hand.

Tips for Treatment 1. You can do it! Treating your cat may sound difficult, but for most owners it soon becomes routine. 2.

No real side effects besides the poos. :( I have also lost weight, in August I was 219 and went down to 206, had a setback, so restarted and back down to 209.

I've lost weight in the 3 weeks as well as keeping my carbs under 25g the entire time. Even if I'm not in ketosis whatever is going on is working so I'll keep doing it
