Health Questions & Answers



Hi, I was just told my female Boston terrier is a diabetic. Her blood sugar was 504 after just being 111 in April. She had some snacks before the blood work and not sure if that would have impacted the number that day. They want me to put her on insulin and I found your website and was reading about your Dia-IONZ. Is this something I could try before starting insulin? Very confused and overwhelmed. Can you give me your advice? I took her to the vet last week due to excess drinking in the past 2-3 weeks.

Dear Diane,

You probably should use insulin to get the blood glucose down to a safer number. DIA-IONX is usually given along with insulin but you can start it before beginning 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 water free of chlorine and flouride. What are you feeding?

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 glucose levels so that you will know if you need to talk to your veterinarian about adjusting the insulin dose. It is important to get the blood glucose levels down to lessen the chances of eye and kidney disease and neuropathy.

Please let us know if you have any other questions.

Best wishes,

Dr. Char
