Health Questions & Answers



Dr. Char,

We have a 13 year old australian sheppard/blue heeler mix. She has been acting listless and recently started drinking a lot and urinating in the house (something she normally does not do). Our vet, Dr. Andy, had her urine and blood tested and said she has diabetes (her blood sugar was 599). She also had a infection in her mouth and they had to remove some teeth. Dr. Andy said she needs to go on insulin shots (twice a day) but we want to try a diabetic diet and your product, Dia-IonXâ„¢, first. I hope we are not endangering her in the process. Dr. Andy did not comment on that area so we are hoping for a quick ship of the Dia-IonXâ„¢ and positive results once we begin using it. She has been our dog since she was a pup and is an important part of our family. We have started her on a Royal Canin Diabetic food regimen but due to the teeth extraction, we can not give it to her in hard form yet. She is still listless with no real energy that she has displayed in the past. Are we making the right decision or should we start the insulin injection as Dr. Andy wants? Larry T.

Dear Larry and Nancy,

 I think you should follow your veterinarian's advice and start the insulin to get the blood glucose down so that you do not put your dog's eyes and kidneys at risk.  Sometimes when there is an infection present the glucose rises so maybe as you get the infection under control the blood glucose will come down too.  Please keep us informed of your progress once you have started Dia-IonX and we can help guide you.<br /><br /> 

Best wishes,
Dr. Char
