Would this product lower symptoms if I decide not to start her (the cat) on insulin shots?

Dear Barb,

DIA-IONX can help with symptoms. You could start with diet, low carbohydrate, no dry food at all and DIA-IONX if the blood glucose is not too high. Your veterinarian needs to monitor the blood glucose so that you know that it is not exceedingly high. Stress of a blood draw can make blood glucose go higher. You can also monitor the amount of glucose in the urine at home. Please note that it is not the same as blood glucose. But if the amount is going up in the urine that would not be a good sign. People usually buy the urine sticks if the pet is on insulin so that they are aware that they need to call their veterinarian about lowering their insulin dose. When on insulin it is important to know that you are not giving too much which will cause low blood sugar.

Best regards,

Dr. Char
