Health Questions & Answers



My min pin is diabetic and requires 10 units of insulin twice a day . She has been taking the Dia-IonX for over a year now and it helps with the thirst and hunger. There are some subtle symptoms of cushings now but the results of the tests are done were Inconclusive. So no medications have been prescribed to treat the cushings at this time. She is 6.5 years old and about 15 pounds. What dosage amount of the phosphatidyl serine and what brand would you suggest to give her. Your advice will be most appreciated. Thank you for your attention to this matter. Kind Regards ... Herb

Dear Placido,

The canine dose for phosphatidyl serine is 70 mg/ 25 pounds of body weight. So you are aiming for approximately 42 mg. In the past I have used a canine product from Thorne Research but they do not make it any longer. Now their human product is substituted. Since it is 100 mg per capsule only a half capsule is given daily for a small dog.

I hope your dog makes improvement.

Best wishes,

Dr. Char
