W elcome to Banfield Pet Hospital’s State of Pet Health 2012 Report—the only report of its kind to capture and analyze the medical data from more than 2 million dogs and nearly 430,000 cats. As the largest veterinary practice in the world, Banfield operates more than 800 hospitals in 43 states, and more than 13,000 associates—including 2,600 licensed veterinarians—work at Banfield.

Our commitment to ongoing preventive care and early disease diagnosis was the driving force behind our focus on the chronic diseases and conditions highlighted in this year’s report, including: overweight and obesity, arthritis, kidney disease, thyroid disease and heart disease. Over the past five years, many chronic conditions have continued to increase, in some instances, at an alarming rate. In this report, the overweight and obesity findings are some of the most concerning—since 2007, overweight and obesity have increased by 37 percent in dogs and 90 percent in cats.

If you or someone you know has diabetes, you may be worried about what the future holds. Diabetes is likely to cause changes in your life, but with proper care, most diabetics can live much as they did before developing the disease. Diabetes is a condition whereby the body does not make enough insulin or use it properly. Without insulin, the body cannot utilize food for energy. People with diabetes have high blood glucose levels and many have high blood cholesterol and triglyceride levels. The two main types of diabetes are: ● Type 1 or insulin-dependent ● Type 2 or non-insulin-dependent Type 1 is treated with daily insulin injections, regular exercise, and a balanced meal plan. The daily meal plan is tailored to an individual’s needs. It is likely to include three meals and two or three snacks eaten at set times each day.

Living Healthy with Diabetes As people get older, their risk for type 2 diabetes increases. In fact, in the United States about one in four people over the age of 60 has diabetes. If you already have diabetes, you may find that you need to adjust how you manage your condition as the years go by. This booklet provides information to help you take care of your diabetes over the long term, so that you can avoid or delay complications and live a long, happy, and active life. Diabetes Basics What is type 2 diabetes? When you eat, your food is broken down into a sugar called glucose. Glucose gives your body the energy it needs to work. But to use glucose as energy, your body makes insulin, which “unlocks” your body’s cells so they can receive the glucose they need.

The Joslin Clinical Nutrition Guideline For Overweight and Obese Adults With Type 2 Diabetes, Prediabetes or at High Risk for Developing Type 2 Diabetes is designed to assist primary care physicians, specialists, and other healthcare providers in individualizing the care of and set goals for adult, non-pregnant patients with type 2 diabetes or individuals at high risk for developing type 2 diabetes. This guideline focuses on the unique needs of those individuals, and complements the 2010 Dietary Guidelines for Americans, which is jointly developed by the Department of Health and Human Services and the Department of Agriculture. It is not intended to replace sound medical judgment or clinical decision-making and may need to be adapted for certain patient care situations where more or less stringent interventions are necessary. The objectives of the Joslin Clinical Diabetes Guidelines are to support clinical practice and to influence clinical behaviors in order to improve clinical outcomes and assure that patient expectations are reasonable and informed. Guidelines are developed and approved through the Clinical Oversight Committee that reports to the Joslin Clinic Medical Director of Joslin Diabetes Center. The Clinical Guidelines are established after careful review of current evidence, medical literature and sound clinical practice. These Guidelines will be reviewed periodically and the Joslin Diabetes Center will maintain, upgrade or downgrade the rating for each recommendation when new evidence mandates such changes.
Gestational Diabetes Meal Plan Gestational diabetes is a form of diabetes that occurs during pregnancy. If you have gestational diabetes, you and your developing baby are likely to have high blood glucose (too much glucose — or “sugar” — in the blood). This can cause problems for both of you during the pregnancy, at birth, and in the years to come. Fortunately, there’s a lot you can do to help control your blood glucose and lower health risks. Following a meal plan is one of the most important parts of your treatment. Your doctor or other healthcare provider (registered dietitian or diabetes educator) will work with you to develop a personalized meal plan. This handout provides a blank plan for you to complete and use — and the information you need to make the most of it. Meal plan basics Meal plans for gestational diabetes are built around a few basic ideas: •• Carbohydrates matter. All foods contain some combination of carbohydrate, fat, and protein. Fat and protein affect your blood glucose over many hours, but carbohydrate affects it much faster. For this reason, you’ll need to regulate your intake of foods that are rich in carbohydrate (“carbs”). Your healthcare provider will show you how — and your meal plan will help you stay on track.
