Alpha herbal replacement for diabetic mix?

Post by fuschia » Thu Jul 28, 2011 1:39 pm

I'm planning on putting together the Diabetic food mix, but any ideas what to use instead of the Alpha Herbal?

Well for now I've made it up using the No8 Complete No Garlic - Elderly Kidney Friendly Rat Rations stuff I had in my cupboard. I wonder if the Xtra Vital Rat mix that they sell would be good?

I couldn't spot any food mixes on there saying suitable for diabetics.

I don't know masses about diabete's but i gather that aiming for more complex carbohydrates is a good idea. In which case a straights based mix is probably a good bet. If anyone is a diabetic or knows much about it and can mention the kind of things that works for humans i can have a go at equating it into rat food. I think there may be something about this in the new scuttling gourmet too, i will try and remember to have a look tonight.
