Just as humans can suffer from a range of different chronic conditions either from birth or that they fall victim to as they age, so cats are also prone to a range of conditions, including those that are related to nutrition. Some of these conditions require veterinary treatment, often in combination with a specially adapted diet. Diabetes is one of the conditions that can often be successfully managed by a special diet.
