purple x, sorry to hear your hamster has diabetes

there's a huge section on this here:

Is your hamster diabetic?

i've heard diabetic hamsters can live long lives given the right care though.

Could this be re-stickied again? It's a great informative thread!

Someone linked this great PDF summary page on [HoneyHams] about diabetic hamster menu, and it has a very helpful photo of Harry/Hazel Hamster with the sugary ingredients identified:
Caring for Diabetic Dwarf Hamsters

As HH is such a popular food, chances are good many hybrids are on it. The yellow flakes and yellow kernels are corn, and the green flat flaky-looking things are smashed peas. Both should be removed for hamsters who are diabetic or very prone to developing diabetes.

.........if I only found this thread 3 years earlier, I could've saved my little buddy.

It's good to know though that I now have a great resource if, God forbid, it were to happen again...thanks for this.

Hi,

Where can you buy keto-diastix? I just want to check one of my hamsters and all I can find is a whole tub of the stix, can you get just one or two stixs?

Ginger hamster you will need to buy a box/tub of them, I don't think you can get just one or two, you can get them in any chemist/pharmacy or buy them online.
