"I just had to write a little note to say a big thank you! My kitty, Davis, was diagnosed with diabetes 2 months ago with glucose levels at 475. We decided to try helping him through his diet before starting him on a lifelong regime of insulin. He has been on Young Again Mature Zero for about a month and his number have already come down by 40%! Our vet expects in another month or two, he will be in complete remission. WOW! I can't thank you enough for helping us avoid insulin!
It took him exactly 2 weeks to adjust to the food and stop overeating, which is exactly what your website said. It's amazing how accurate your feeding instructions are. I was skeptical at first and I really wanted to continue my timed/measured feeding schedule, but this free-feeding works like a charm. He has stopped overeating and I'm excited to watch him continue to feel better as time goes on.
His brother Miles has kidney disease and he is doing well on the food also. Having two cats with different medical issues was really stressful at first but I'm happy to have found a food they both like and are doing well on! I just had to say thank you!”
Awesome to hear another story similar to mine! My cat Milo was also diagnosed with diabetes and the vet recommended the RX brand food just as yours did. I did my own research on carbohydrate levels in the RX brand foods and found they were still over and above 10% carbs per serving. I saw the same posts in regards to Fancy Feast and we used that kind of food only as "treats" after testing his blood. Certain varieties did have low carbohydrate load but they by no means we're carb free. When I ran across Young Again Zero through a Google search I was a little taken back by the price but I can honestly tell you now, it made ALL the difference. My Milo has not been on insulin for 10 solid months. I will not use any other brand food for him because I'm a firm believer that diet makes a complete difference in the health of my cat. I told my vet about the food and she never heard of such a thing. I was floored! Because I did my own research and bought Young Again Zero we never had to buy a second order of insulin or syringes. Essentially, Young Again saved my cat. We've since switched to Young Again Zero Mature formula and he is doing great!
Very grateful for the Young Again Zero Mature Health formula. My 10 year old son's cat was diagnosed with diabetes in January. His glucose reading during the first week ranged from 390-435. We immediately started him on the Rx formula our vet prescribed and it shot up to nearly 500.
I did a lot of research on various Diabetic Feline groups, many recommended a few specific flavors of Fancy Feast pate. Despite it (and insulin) bringing his glucose numbers down it wasn't enough for a kitty used to having food all day and then someone mentioned Young Again. I ordered our first bag and to be honest, I was pretty skeptical. I am very grateful to say he has been off insulin since March, his Neuropathy has resolved itself, he has lost fat and not muscle and his glucose readings stay in the 70-85 range.
When Wesley was first diagnosed, because the Neuropathy was so severe, our vet recommended euthanasia in front of my (then 9 year old) son. You have given a little boy's companion many more years of health.
Courageous Cat, the love of my life, was diagnosed with diabetes in September. His numbers were all over the place and he would not regulate, needing 3 sometimes 4 units a day. On 1/16 I put him on Young Again Zero Carb. Today, January 31st, is day 8 that he does not need a shot! If I had all of you who developed this product in front of me, I would give you a huge hug! I'm overjoyed!
Tigger the Angry Diabetic Cat - Young Again Zero Carb lover since August! Tigger has just celebrated his one year anniversary being on Young Again Zero Carb food. What a huge difference this has made - no more insulin - he's healthier, he has more energy!!! You really did save Tigger's life. Thanks from the bottom of our hearts! Love you guys!
I want to Thank "Young Again" ZERO cat food for saving me and my Maine Coon! My baby boy was peeing and drinking nonstop when I took him to my Vet and found out that he was diabetic (I kind of already knew since I'm a nurse but my cat is different from my patients right??? ). The Vet gave me some expensive cat food (dry and wet) and insulin (2 units) twice a day but his blood sugars remained greater than 250. I began researching and discovered “Young Again". It made complete sense since my outdoor cats survive on meat only and no carbs. Thankfully I ordered No carb Young Again dry food and within a week shockingly my boy was normoglycemic (blood sugars in the low 100's). It's now been 9 weeks and my boy is still perfect and happy. He has begun to play again and has lost weight (20.5lbs down to 18.8lbs). All the research Young again has done about feline diabetes makes sense but for some reason my Vet still tries to sell me food that doesn't make sense, can we possibly pass on this research to them so that other kitties do not become or remain diabetic!!!! I really cannot thank you enough,
Thank you so much for your wonderful food. I only wish I knew about it sooner! I have two diabetic kitties and now one is completely off of insulin and the other is on a very, very low dose.
Fudge-In remission from diabetes on Young Again ....Your food is widely suggested across several diabetes groups.
My Mercedes was diagnosed about 9 months ago. Her numbers were running from 200 to high 300's. She was on 1 unit of Lantus twice a day. My vet didn't want to even discuss diet change or home testing! Needless to say we switched vets, got her on some low carb dry and wet food. She was never fond of the wet. Her numbers were still in the 200's. Every now and then she'd drop down to the high 100's. I emailed you guys for samples and received them right away. She loved the food so I ordered a bag. I received that food on the 14th. Her doses every day got lower and lower and I can officially say she has been off insulin since the 18th!!! She looks happy, her coat looks better and she is jumping on things she hasn't jumped on in quite a while. And her numbers have been running between 50-85. Thank you again!
On July 6, our beloved cat Tiggy became very ill. After seeing the vet he was admitted. They called us a few hours later and gave us the news that Tiggy was diabetic. His numbers when he went in to critical care were well beyond 500 Blood Sugar. We were given Pro Zinc Insulin and the needles and sent home to begin injections two times a day 1 unit each time. Then we also had to take him back very frequently to have a blood sugar check. We began researching Feline Diabetes and my wife found a message board "Feline Diabetes Message Board." There she read and researched his diagnosis. There she found a forum member who mentioned Young Again Zero for Cats. Mind you my wife had already began a transition from the Meow Mix brand over to low carbohydrate wet foods such as Fancy Feast Classics, and Friskies Pates. His numbers at this time two weeks into injections were sitting at 240-260. Then we ordered the Young Again ZERO, as soon as the bag arrived it was like Tiggy knew the dry food was here, he had no issues tearing up his first bowl and on and on. As we began feeding him Young Again Zero, my wife immediately saw a change. His fur. The coat is as soft as a bunny rabbit, his energy level improved and he actually was very, very happy to have dry kitty kibble to eat as Tiggy is not a true fan of any wet food. My wife began to give less insulin as Tig was nearly eating only Young Again. The twice a day 1 unit of Pro Z was reduced to 1/2 unit twice a day, just on instinct alone. Three weeks after his diagnosis my wife made another appointment for a sugar check, this was interesting. That day Tiggy's blood sugar was 90. The vet said no shot. Well that was nearly two weeks ago and no shots required. Our beloved cat is back to better than normal. His numbers are stable and we couldn't be happier. I know for sure, without a doubt that Young Again ZERO, was the tipping point for my cat's remission. I have copied and delivered Young Again Zero's information and gave it to the veterinarian's office. The cost of Young Again is well worth it. Please do not ever stop making this wonderful cat food. After hours of research Young Again ZERO was the hero for our fur kid, we are real people who love our pet so much that we would have went to the end of the earth to resolve his diabetic diagnosis. Diet alone, I believe, using Young Again may very well have corrected and placed my cat into remission. Thank you Very Very Much.
I was introduced to Young Again cat food by people who were active in the feline diabetic community. My cat, Maury was diagnosed with diabetes, was overweight and had crystals in his urine and was a terribly finicky eater. I needed to get him off his high carb kibble and he wouldn't touch wet food. That is when I tried Young Again, Zero Mature. Maury's diabetes has been in remission and he has lost weight while on his Young Again diet. Michael Massie was so patient and helpful with the slew of emails and phone calls to guide me through this tough time. Thank you Michael and Young Again.
Our patient is a 12 year old male neutered tiger cat named “Chicco”. He presented in October 2014 for weight loss. Routine cbc and chemistries were normal and a urine sample was not attainable at the time. The owner was advised to follow up with urinalysis at their convenience. The cat was not seen again until November 2015 with 5 ½ pounds of weight gain, and urinating large amounts. We again ran a cbc, chemistry, and were able to collect urine for a urinalysis via cystocentesis. His cbc was normal and his blood chemistries were all normal except for a mildly elevated blood glucose at 221 micrograms/deciliter. Chicco’s urinalysis results demonstrated a specific gravity of 1.024, 2+ protein, pH 7.0, negative for ketones, and a 2+ glucose. Microscopically there were 3-5 WBC’s per high power field and 2+cocci bacturia. At this time, we diagnosed diabetes mellitus with a secondary UTI.
Our treatment plan was simple. We needed to get our patient to lose weight in a manner that would also allow for better glycemic control and we needed to treat the UTI. The UTI was treated with an injection of Convenia at the request of the owner since giving the cat oral medications was quite difficult. The difficulty with our plan was that the best way to achieve the weight loss and glycemic control traditionally meant a high protein, low carbohydrate canned food diet and our patient, being a cat, refuses to eat any form of canned food. Enter our savior, one of our long-standing clients who happens to work at a local pet food company, “Pretty Bird”. Our client had been in a while back super excited to talk about the new foods for cats and dogs that her company had developed. After getting some samples and reading about the product and some of the other testimonials, I started getting excited too! A dry cat food that was metabolically appropriate! This fits the bill for most owners because of convenience and for veterinarians because of the content.
We started our tiger cat, “Chicco”, on the Young Again Zero Carb Formula. One month later, we were extremely pleased that our patient’s drinking and urination patterns had returned to normal, he had lost a full pound, his urine glucose was negative, and his blood glucose was 124 micrograms/deciliter. With just a diet change we were able to resolve his current health issues. Thanks Young Again!!
