  • Lamintis
  • Cushings
  • Obesity

External Signs and Symptoms

There are a number of tell- tale signs that point to EMS with the main one being the distribution of adipose tissue (fat) See the diagram.

Sometimes the onset of laminitis is an indicator that the endrocrine system is being put under strain.

Changes begin to occur internally which will hasten the onset of insulin resistance and metabolic disruption.

The objective of any treatment will be to increase insulin sensitivity, lower blood sugar levels and adjust the process of gylcation which is responsible for degenerative problems ie oxidative stress and the destruction of DNA.
