Equine Metabolic Syndrome, Cushing's and Insulin Resistance:

Laminitis EMS Horse Herbs HealthEquine Metabolic syndrome (EMS) or Cushing's syndrome is a progressive disease that follows a predictable course in accordance with the parameters of the model. Insulin resistance (IR), in both humans and horses, initiates the metabolic syndrome and is considered to be the root of the disease process. IR refers to a breakdown in the cells' ability to respond normally to insulin action; therefore the term "resistance". Quantitatively, IR displays a pattern in blood tests that shows normal serum/blood glucose and elevated serum insulin. This pattern is the foundation of all the abnormalities found in the metabolic syndrome. More Info >

As soon as a horse enters the IR phase the risk of laminitis begins and the risk increases as the metabolic syndrome progresses with higher levels of insulin. During this course, less of a trigger is needed to initiate an acute laminitic event. Laminitis is the most "visible" of the constellation of abnormalities that accompany themetabolic syndrome; some of the others, not immediately noticeable, are a decreased immune functioning, vascular issues, a variety of categories of anemia, and gastrointestinal problems. Each of these serious health problems increases as the metabolic syndrome progresses.

Laminitis

Laminitis, also known as founder, is a consequence of the equine metabolic syndrome/IR and is not a disease in and of itself. The name [laminae + itis] describes the inflammatory process associated with the stretching and/or separation of the laminae from the coffin bone. That means that the coffin bone separates from the inner hoof wall and rotates downward toward the sole of the hoof and in some instances penetrates the sole. More often than not there will be abscesses within the hoof capsule following a laminitic event and will take the form of bacterial infection.

The resulting hoof damage must be treated as immediately as possible. To stop the ongoing acute damage and start to repair the hoof, we recommend that you use MMP Stop within the first 5 days of an acute laminitic episode. If that is what is happening with your horse now, read more on MMP Stop.

We have found that an essential component of recovering the hoof from such devastating damage requires not only our herbal solutions but also "regular" barefoot trimming by a trimmer experienced in this approach and with laminae separation.

The EMS/Cushing's/IR Solution is the foundation herbal formula for recovery from the metabolic syndrome in all its aspects. This solution increases cellular glucose utilization thereby decreasing the elevated serum insulin levels, regulates the insulin-glucose relationship, regulates the enzyme 11 beta-hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase-1 activity, assists in a more efficient metabolism of carbohydrates, and promotes a more alkaline intestinal environment.

Support Service

Clients with horses who have EMS/Cushing's/IR or who have had a laminitic episode are welcome to submit a Horse Health History profile online, print or fax, or request the form to be sent to you by postal mail.  We will then be able to assist you by email or phone to monitor and support your horse's healing process.

Great formula!

My 27 yo warmblood is feeling so much better since her's been on this formula! He's brighter and happier. I hope everyone with an IR/metabolic horse would give this a go! PS, he loves the taste and it's easy to give, kind of turned into a "legal treat"!
