My cat was just diagnosed with diabeties I live in Canada and the vet cost would be too expensive for me to afford the insulin twice daily and special food which is very expensive as well. I can get the food for a reasonble price, but the insulin injection is too expensive. I don't want my cat to go without help and was wondering would this Dia-lonX work without the injections Thank you J B

Dear Julie,

We usually recommend that you give 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 give insulin. In the cat there are factors that help them to respond well to holistic 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. Low carbohydrate canned foods that are nonprescription include Friskies Classic Pate Salmon, Fancy Feast - Savory Salmon Feast, Turkey and Giblets Feast, and White Meat Chicken Florentine. These are 2% or lower in carbohydrates. These can be used if your cat does not like the prescription food or you need to offer more choices.

In addition I give digestive enzymes, probiotics and Omega 3,6,9. 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.

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

Best wishes,

Dr. Char
