Hormonal Disorder in Birds

Treatment

 

Treating Diabetes Mellitus generally involves insulin, which corrects levels of blood sugar for a short duration. Insulin can be given by injection, by mouth or through water. The water method allows the bird self-regulate its levels of insulin.

 

Once the insulin takes effects, the bird's thirst will also decrease. This, in turn, will lead to less consumption of medicated water, and will further regulate insulin levels in the bird with Diabetes Mellitus.

 

Prevention

 

In some birds, hormonal disorders like Diabetes Mellitus are temporary. In birds with permanent Diabetes Mellitus, regular medication is needed to prevent this hormonal disorder from becoming fatal.
