The antagonism and the insulin: A gripping saga of feline acromegaly

Article

Come along as Dr. David Bruyette cuts through the mysteries of this potential confounding factor in diabetic patients.

Insulin resistance in cats-cats requiring more insulin a day to get their blood glucose concentrations regulated-is increasingly recognized and a growing concern. Veterinary internist Dr. David Bruyette discusses how acromegaly has been determined to be the main cause of this phenomenon in cats. Dr. Bruyette also discusses up-and-coming diagnostic and treatment options for acromegaly. (Can you say "transsphenoidal hypophysectomy" three times fast? We bet Dr. Bruyette can.)
