My 10 yr male cat wt 17.4 lbs has a non fasting blood suger of 183. Vet said I could try to bring it down with diet. He has always been on holistic organic foods but obviuosly too much of it. Can I give him Dia-IonX while reducing his weight even though he's not diagnosed with diabetes? He is otherwise in good health. Thank you

Dear Marilyn,

DIA-IONX was designed to help with the symptoms of diabetes and to stimulate the body to heal. You can use it in your case. 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. 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. There are some OTC foods that are low in carbohydrates in case your cat does not like prescription diabetic food. 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. Dry cat food stresses out the pancreas. In addition I give probiotics and Omega 3,6,9. DIA-IONX helps the body to better utilize the diet and supplements better for a synergistic effect. Sometimes cats are able to control their glucose levels by just 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.
