I have an 8 year old Silky Terrier on 6 units of Vetsulin bid. His glucose is running 120-1 47 regularly. BUN is normal once we added the evening dosage. Would this help him and how often would I need to have his glucose tested? Thanks, Judy

Dear Judy,

DIA-IONX is usually given along with insulin. I would suggest you try DIA-IONX because it helps to control the symptoms of diabetes and it's therapeutic mineral base helps activate the enzyme systems in the body that help with healing. Some owners have told us it has helped stabilize the blood glucose levels. The dose I start with is a half dose twice per day on the breakfast and supper food. In addition I like to give probiotics, MSM, and Omega 3,6,9 daily. DIA-IONX will help the body better utilize the other supplements for a synergistic response. In addition make sure that you offer sufficient water free of chlorine and free of fluoride. What are you feeding your dog?

A regular exercise schedule is also helpful in moving glucose from the blood and into the muscles which will reduce the blood glucose. It is important that you monitor the blood or urine glucose levels so that you will know if you need to talk to your veterinarian about adjusting the insulin dose. Continue with the blood testing that you have been doing, but in addition I would check the urine with urine glucose strips daily. The goal is to keep the urine slightly positive for glucose. If it dips lower you would not want to give an insulin dose before checking with your veterinarian because you need to know what the blood glucose is.

Please let us know if you have any other questions.

Best wishes,

Dr. Char
