Healthy diabetic cats can sometimes be successfully treated with a hypoglycemic medication, glipizide. Glipizide acts by lowering blood glucose, but unlike insulin, it is given orally. Adverse side effects are not common but include vomiting, loss of appetite, and liver damage. If hyperglycemia persists after one or two months of therapy, or if the cat becomes ill or ketoacidotic, glipizide therapy should be discontinued and insulin therapy instituted. Underweight diabetic cats should be fed a high fiber diet only after reaching their ideal body weight after being fed a high calorie diet.

Persons with diabetes and kidney disease have a higher risk of heart attacks and strokes. Hence, an early detection of diabetes is important to control diabetes and prevent kidney failure. Diabetes can cause other problems such as high cholesterol and high blood pressure. people with uncontrolled high blood sugar have a higher incidence of dying of a heart attack or stroke. Medications are available that can decrease the pain of diabetic neuropathy, but do little to improve actual nerve function, nor help with neuropathy-related balance problems. There are some natural treatments; however, that do appear to improve nerve function in many cases. Of course, the first line of defense is simply making the necessary lifestyle changes to try to reverse diabetes and/or to prevent it from getting worse, including diet and exercise. Beyond that, there are nutritional supplements and other interventions that have shown promising results in recent studies in actually improving nerve function in cases of diabetic neuropathy.
