Diabetes testing and treatment

March 6, 2011

Here is a good post on how to test your hamster for diabetes — elevated ketone or glucose levels.

You can buy Keto-Diastix reagent strips.  It’s not clear to me whether these are especially for hamsters, or for humans.  The link above says to ask at a pharmacy.  And you may need to buy ketostix and diastix separately if you can’t find the combined form.
