The diet food contains specific carbohydrates (barley, maize and psyllium) that are gradually absorbed by the body after the meal. These ingredients help to limit fluctuations in blood sugar. The dietary fibre slows down absorption in the small intestine, and improves regulation of the glucose level in affected dogs.
