I don't know if it's a coincidence, but after starting my 12 yr. old cat (with an auto-immune disease and permanently on methylprednisolone and several other meds and recently showed slight indications of elevated sugar from the test strips) on Dia-IonX, she started pooping both in and out of her litter box and scooting "streaks" across the floors. So I discontinued it in case that was what causing the problem. How many days does it take to leave her system? Other than that she seems like herself, though when she poops she gets frustrated like she has to keep going and then cleans herself. I don't think this was the right product for her. Any input would be appreciated. Thanks, Suzanne

Dear Suzanne,

Steroids such as methylprednisolone can elevate blood sugar. If you are using multiple foreign substances (drugs) there is a lot more toxicity in the body than normal. Drugs are prescription items because they are not to be taken lightly. It means there are side effects associated with them. DIA-IONX may be trying to detoxify the body of some of these or trying to expel some of these substances that have accumulated in the tissues over the years. Actually it may be a good thing to clean house. The goal is do to do it in a controlled fashion. If there is detoxification going on, I stop the homeopathic to let the body catch up and when things are back to normal then I start again at one drop twice a day, increasing it by one drop a day until I get to 10 drops twice a day. If there any new signs I drop back to the previous dosage and stay there for a while. Later as the body becomes cleaner it sometimes can handle a larger dose. However, a larger dose isn't always necessary either.

Are you using probiotics? This is helpful for good bowel health. The drugs you are giving are damaging to the normal intestinal flora. It is recommended to give probiotics to restore the good beneficial bacteria and to crowd out the yeast and bad ones. In working with autoimmune disease one usually needs to address the flora and fix the leaky gut. Having antigens enter the blood stram via this route keeps the immune system in alarm mode.

Please let us know what you observe and how she is acting over the course of the next week or so.
