Default Re: Is your hamster diabetic?

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.
