Usually insulin is used to get the blood glucose level down faster. One can give DIA-IONX along with insulin. DIA-IONX was designed to help with the symptoms of diabetes and to stimulate the body to heal. Healing takes time and so you need to monitor blood glucose levels to determine if it is appropriate to adjust your therapy. You may find your cat needs less insulin. In the cat there are factors that help them to respond well to therapy. 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. I would try these Low carbohydrate canned foods that are nonprescription; they 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. Sometimes cats are able to control their blood sugar levels with just diet and supplements. It is important to avoid giving water that contains Chlorine and fluoride.
