Dia-IonX has helped many dogs better regulate their diabetes and sometimes reduce their insulin dosage. Some owners have informed us that they were able to gradually wean their pet off of insulin entirely. Each patient is an individual and should be treated as such, so we can't predict what will happen in your situation. Sometimes there is another disease process that is driving the diabetic condition that would also need to be resolved. In your dog's case you will need to give insulin to get the blood glucose down to safer levels more quickly. Having high blood sugar can be damaging to the kidneys and eyes, which is why you would want to do both insulin and Dia-IonX concurrently to minimize the side-effects. If you do this you will need to be watchful for signs of hypoglycemia such as weakness or trembling so that you can give some sugar to bring the blood glucose back up if it goes too low. You will need to communicate with your veterinarian to make sure you are giving the appropriate insulin dose.
In addition I find the following things to be synergistic if given with Dia-IonX. Feed only food and treats approved for diabetes. Give digestive enzymes with each meal, and probiotics, MSM, and a fish oil supplement daily.
Dia-IonX will help the body use the supplements better for a faster response. It is also helpful to have a regular, moderate exercise schedule because it facilitates the movement of glucose out of the blood and into the muscles.
I hope we can help improve the quality of life for both you and your dog. Please let us know how you do and if you have any further questions that we can help you with.
