My cat is 11 years old and has just now been diagnosed with diabetes. Our Vet wants to start him on Insulin. Is this the best way. It just cost so much I don't think we will be able to do it.

Dear Beverly,

We recommend giving insulin until the need is no longer there. Dia-IonX was designed to help with the symptoms of diabetes and to stimulate the body to heal. Healing takes time and so you need to monitor blood glucose levels to determine if it is appropriate to adjust the dosage. In the cat there are factors that help them to respond well to therapy. It is important to feed wet cat food and no dry food at all if possible and all foods including treats should consist of ingredients suitable for a diabetic. In addition I give digestive enzymes, probiotics, and fish oil. Dia-IonX helps the body to better utilize the diet and supplements better for a synergistic effect for faster healing. It is also important to avoid giving water that contains chlorine and fluoride.

Exercise helps to move glucose from the blood stream into the muscles helping to regulate the blood sugar levels. Hopefully you can get your cat to play. Having a consistent schedule is necessary in good regulation.

Some cats can discontinue insulin by following diet and exercise. It depends upon how severe the situation is that you are starting from.

Please let us know how you do or if you have any other questions.

Best wishes,

Dr. Char
