Diabetic Dog Game

Can you take care of a diabetic dog properly? In this game your dog has type-1 diabetes, a very serious disease. With proper treatment, however, your dog can live a happy life for many years. When we eat, the blood sugar level in our blood rises, and the hormone insulin is released into the blood stream to regulate the sugar level. Someone suffering from diabetes does not produce or properly use insulin and therefore has to get it through injections.

It is important not to let your dog's blood sugar get too high or low. The better you care for the dog, the more money you earn, and you can buy nice things for your dog. Play along!
