A. There are specific foods which help to regulate and in part treat diabetes. I have had most success with royal canin diabetic which is specifically low carb with balanced fiber and protein and supplemented with ingredients to regulate blood glucose; other companies such as hills also make diabetic suitable diets, both in dry and wet forms.
