From Pete Ramey's Web Site:
"Laminitis induced by high insulin levels! New paper from University of Queensland will finally make the entire world place primary focus on diet and exercise for preventing and treating laminitis.
Finally, this is what we've been waiting for! Katie Asplin, et al., at University of Queensland have released the "study of the century (in my opinion)". They've proven that laminitis can be induced by prolonged high insulin levels! This will be a critical turning point in laminitis research, and should immediately cause the veterinary world to place primary focus on diet and exercise for both prevention and treatment of laminitis. Read the paper."
This is amazing - diet and exercise - just like in humans, does indeed have an impact on preventing laminitis, like diabetes!!
