Alert, The Birds Are Prone To Illness Of Diabetes Millitus

Alert, The Birds Are Prone To Illness Of Diabetes Millitus
The disease of diabetes mellitus on the bird as long as this has not been considered a serious illness. Whereas, as was ever written in this omkicau.com blog, diabetes can cause various disorders follow-up and also could result in the death of the birds. Symptoms of diabetes mellitus on naked eye is almost the same with other diseases, and because it is often wrong in handling.

Diabetes mellitus (diabetes/Diabetes) or often referred to as diabetes was originally considered to be a disease that only experienced people. The assumption was shattered when some veterinarians in Europe and the United States see fact that dogs and cats can also suffer similar illnesses.

The first case of the disease of diabetes found in birds from the crooked beak family (parrot), like the lovebird, cockatoo, macaws, and parrots. To ascertain whether Your pet bird having diabetes, inevitably had to be taken to an animal clinic that has sufficient equipment for the examination of the levels of sugar in the blood (blood sugar levels). Blood sugar levels is reflected through the examination of blood sugar levels in urine (urine) birds.

Checked the health of the bird to a veterinarian or veterinary clinic? For most of the beekeeper and penangkar birds in Indonesia, it is apparently still rarely done. Besides the cost factor, is also a maintenance culture in this country that have not been supportive. More wretched again, not all veterinarians have the means to test blood sugar compensatory ritual are required. On the contrary, this kind of thing is already prevalent in the developed countries, especially for the bird which penangkar aware that the birds (ranging from piyik to sell decent bird) is primary capital their businesses, while animal clinic was already equipped with adequate laboratory.

This article is intended to improve understanding, gratitude-gratitude can be a driver for the penangkar, to start getting used to the bird's health clinic saw animals. Especially if it's expensive birds, ranging from one million to tens of millions of dollars, it was the cost of an examination to be nothing compared with regret when the bird should die due to an unknown illness because we refused to take him to the vet.

Birds of diabetics do not undergo exercise programs are recommended, including the kinds that are too long, or following the race. But if ever to win the race, or had a relative of the champion, it feels pity if these birds are allowed to die without having had time to produce offspring.

If you agree with this understanding, please continue to read this article. But if you do not agree, yes still continue reading this article (plus his comments Yes, he ... he ...)

Clinical Symptoms

Symptoms of diabetes in birds is almost similar to what is experienced by humans and mammals.

First, birds are seen consuming in excess water. He was always thirsty. Though just a drink of water, not how long he is seen drinking water again. Penangkar, or enclosure, officials should pay attention to whether there are birds in the cage that shows symptoms such as this.

Second, the birds are also too often issued the urine (urine) is one of the effects of excessive water consumption. As warm-blooded animals, birds also issued the urine. In mammals, the mouth of the digestive tract (rectum) is separate from the estuary channel excretion (urethra). The mouth of the channel eksresi is usually equal to the estuary of the reproductive tract (genitalia).

Well, the birds are not. The estuary of the digestive tract, and the excretion tract, reproductive tract are one and the same external organs, called the cloaca. That is, the Cloaca is a place where birds secrete droppings (feces), urine, as well as the sperm or the egg (male) (female). Normally, urine comes out along with the feces, because the muscles in the tail section of the structure requires so. That is why, each time removing the bird droppings, always there is a yellowish or greenish liquid that is urine.

In this case, you should be able to tell the difference between too often issued the urine and diarrhea. If birds had diarrhea, then the volume of the liquid in the feces will increase (dirt becomes more dilute). While the birds who have diabetes, dirt still looks normal but too often excluded.

Third, as in humans, birds suffering from diabetes are also prone to infection or inflammation. In addition, his wounds long healed, too. Therefore, when a wounded bird, encountered and difficult to be cured, you must be alert to the possibility of birds affected by diabetes.

Fourth, the birds look fatter but not proportionally. But some time later, suddenly looks thin. Relying on this observation alone is of course difficult to be the benchmark that the birds affected by diabetes.
The first symptoms until the third amplifier can be a symptom of the fourth.

Fifth, and most accurate, is checked the bird to the vet. The doctor will check your blood sugar levels by taking samples of urine from a sick bird. You can perform this action when they come across some or all of the symptoms mentioned earlier.

Diabetes in Canaries

One of the birds that often have diabetes is walnuts. As quoted from j.m.j kenari-canary.blogspot.com, affected by diabetes has the following characteristics:

Looks pinkish colored leg nerve
The bird somewhat lethargic condition
Kotoranya keep as usual
Appetite is the same as usual

If you find the Canaries with the above characteristics, then the chances are you are suffering from diabetes walnuts.

Cause Factor

Diabetes is a disease that involves the pancreas. In mammals, such as dogs and cats, diabetes results from the pancreas is unable to produce sufficient amounts of insulin. Insulin is a hormone that plays a role in the metabolism of sugar and arrangements. Diabetes caused the pancreas is unable to produce sufficient amounts of insulin are known as type 1 Diabetes.

But there are also mammals who have type 2 Diabetes, a condition in which the body does not have the proper response to insulin. Both types provide the same effect, that is blood glucose or blood sugar increases, from level to level is dangerous, so that the body is no longer able to use glucose to perform some of the functions of the vital organs. Actually there is one type of diabetes: diabetes insipidus, but not 
discussed in this article.

In birds, diabetes also resulted in an increase in blood sugar, but the cause is different. If diabetes in mammals is caused by the inability of the pancreas to produce sufficient amounts of insulin, on birds cause because too much production of hormones glucagon (glucagon).

According to Lynn Dustin VMD_, animal health experts from Bay Area Bird Hospital in San Francisco, the United States, it occurs as a result of pancreas suffer infection or inflammation, or other secondary causes. This is distinctly different than type 1 Diabetes, which is often experienced by mammals and humans.

The production of glucagon in excess leads to increased blood sugar levels so as to interfere with the metabolism and regulation of blood sugar. So the cause is different, but the impact is the same, namely the increased blood sugar levels.

Diagnosis Of Diabetes

In humans, a person is said to be suffering from diabetes when the blood sugar levels reach above 200 mg/dl. Under normal circumstances, blood sugar levels are in the range of 70-125 mg/dl.

In birds, blood sugar levels are said to be normal if it were below 500 mg/dl. If it is in the range of 500-600 mg/dl, this is a symptom of less well and leads to the symptoms of diabetes. As for the limitation of birds is thought to be suffering from diabetes is when blood sugar levels are in the range of 600-2,000 mg/dl. Some veterinary experts told me that the level of 800 mg/dl as a certainty that the birds affected by diabetes.

In normal condition, urine glucose who possess a bird gently. Unfortunately, this material could not be seen by naked eye. So, it is difficult for the layperson to know how blood sugar levels in birds is represented through the urine. Therefore, inevitably, to diagnose whether the birds affected by diabetes should do blood sugar checks in the laboratory animal clinic, in addition to observing clinical symptoms described earlier.

Caring For A Bird Of Diabetics

In all cases of diabetes, either on humans, mammals, and birds, the sufferer should consume foods with low levels of carbohydrates, or low calorie. This is referred to as a low-sugar diet. Carbohydrates should still be consumed, as well as protein, fat, fibre, minerals and vitamins. But in birds, konsumsinya sufferers need to set somewhat the levels of sugar in the blood is always under control.

Daily activities, including exercise programs, also should be arranged so that blood sugar levels can be controlled with the good.

In humans, the method is often done in addition to a low calorie diet is injecting the hormone insulin. How this is done every bird handling Dustin Lynn diabetics bird hospital where he worked.

But, according to Bird Channel, injecting the hormone insulin proved less satisfying because it is not enough to be able to control your blood glucose. The hormone insulin that is injected only survive a few hours alone in the body of the bird.

The treatment uses proven capable of caring for birds glipizide diabetes effectively, much better than injecting the hormone insulin. This medicine is given through the mouth, about 15-30 minutes before the birds were given food, making it easier for maintainers or penangkar birds, because it does not need to use the spuit or syringe.
