Default Re: diabetes in hamsters

Managing diabetes can be difficult but many do manage to live for some time with the condition, there isn't a simple treatment it's more a case of managing diet & treating according to the levels of glucose & ketones in the urine which has to be tested regularly.
For more info have a read of this thread here.
So you think your hamster is diabetic
Vectis has some helpful info on her site here too.
