While diabetes and hyperthyroidism are the most common feline endocrine disorders, recent recognition of hyperaldosteronemia has made us aware of interesting new conditions that we should recognize. These conditions may well be more common than hyperadrenocorticism, Addison’s, pheochromocytoma and other rare conditions. Acromegaly may be an inapparent, yet potentially treatable underlying problem in a portion of diabetic patients. The indications for looking for these conditions will be discussed along with therapy.
