Subject: [ferrethealth] Re: Is it possible for a ferret to have insulinoma and diabetes at the same time?

A friend of mine has diabetes and occassionally has a crash where it goes the other way into what is bascially insulinoma, so with ferrets having such a similar metabolisms to us I would imagine that removing one insulinoma may trigger a jump the other way causing diabetes as a spike, my thoughts but with no real backup to these contemplations.

Very sorry to hear of your loss it never gets any easier and causes dont alleviate such loss. sending sympathy and fuzzy love

[Well, diabetics can at times not control their insulin and meals well
enough and wind up with hypogylcemia bouts but that is not insulinoma.
Insulinoma involves specific changes to the beta cells and is a distinct
condition that itself can cause hypogylcemia, but it is not
the symptom (hypoglycemia) itself but instead causes that symptom.
