Equine metabolic syndrome (EMS) is a condition characterized by insulin resistance and an increased risk of pasture-associated laminitis (easy keepers). Cushings is known as PPID. Polysaccharide storage myopathy (PSSM) is characterized by abnormal glycogen accumulation in muscle tissue caused by a hypersensitivity to insulin. Recurrent exertional rhabdomyolysis (RER) is an inherited condition that involves abnormal intracellular calcium regulation during muscle contraction. Horses with RER (Tie-up) suffer from painful muscle cramping when they exercise.
Dr. Ray Geor from Michigan State University suggests* that weight management and control of insulin levels are two important ways to help maximize quality of life and longevity in horses with laminitis associated with PPID and EMS. *Geor, R.A. 2013.

Feed management and nutritional support help to control insulin levels; thereby reducing the associated symptoms (laminitis, etc.) of metabolic disorders.
