My 9 yr old cat was just diagnosed with diabetes and he has inflammatory bowel disease. We are unable to commit to 7 day/week every 12 hr schedule of insulin shots. Can you please advise the dose needed for a 15 lb cat of DIA-IONX and if Probiotics or some other product would help as well. He has been on .5 mil of prednisone.

Dear Maryellen,

DIA-IONX was designed to help with the symptoms of diabetes and to stimulate the body to heal. I would give 10 drops of DIA-IONX twice daily with breakfast and supper. Healing takes time and so you need to monitor blood glucose levels to determine if it is appropriate to adjust your therapy. 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 Omega 3,6,9. DIA-IONX helps the body to better utilize the diet and supplements better for a synergistic effect for faster healing. Sometimes cats are able to get off insulin and control their glucose levels by diet and supplementation. 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 www.vetionx.com
