Is this just a lightly veiled attempt to get more cats on here? Maybe!

What are your thoughts on cats helping with diabetes?

Yes, I adopted a 4 year old male cat. One mighty pump separated from my body. My cat patted my face wit his paw. He didn't scratch me, he was patting my face…LOL. Around 2 am. I'm thinking go away cat, I'm sleepy. He would not stop until I actually got up. I got off the bed and notice my pump disconnected from me. He's my angel. :) I'm a dog person. I love both dogs or cats.

No experience with them from the perspective of using them as a service animal to detect high BGs or coma, but they certainly are supportive, warm, cuddly, and help reduce stress and increase perceived wellbeing. Those are positives in the lives of diabetics because of the role negative stress plays in increased BG levels.
