obese dogs showed to have an increased blood insulin level
Ft. Lauderdale, FL (PRWEB) December 07, 2012
The Sciencedaily.com found a rare study on October 31, 2012 at the University of Liverpool about obese dogs being at risk for the same health conditions obese humans are diagnosed with.
Scientist’s at the university did a study on 35 obese dogs and recovered that 20% were found to have the Metabolic Syndrome that obese humans are diagnosed with. Metabolic Syndrome is a condition where increased blood glucose and cholesterol levels develop at the same time, which can cause other diseases as well, such as cardiovascular disease and diabetes.
A lot like obese humans, obese dogs showed to have an increased blood insulin level This means the pancreas is overworking more than normal to control blood glucose and blood adiponectin, which is a protein produced by fat cells that help control fats and sugars. These symptoms were found at below average levels. Although they have not exactly determined what the health impacts of these issues are and if they are similar to the diseases that metabolic syndrome causes on humans, it does show that when the dog loses weight the proper way the metabolic syndrome improves in the dog as well as prolonging their life and having a lot more energy.
To avoid any obesity problems in your dog a healthy diet and daily exercise could help prevent Metabolic Syndrome from happening along with other unknown health factors. The University would now like to research the other health factors that could potentially follow with the Metabolic Syndrome.
