My cat was just diagnosed with diabetes today. We have not started any medication yet. We travel a lot and leave the cat home. Would your product Dia-IonX replace the insulin the Vet has recommended?

Dear Judy,

You might need to start insulin to get things under control if it is severe. You can give DIA-IONX along with insulin. DIA-IONX 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. After giving DIA-IONX for a while some owners have reported that they have been able to reduce the insulin dosage and some have been able to stop giving it because it was no longer. However, each patient is unique and has its own set of circumstances. One cannot stop giving insulin until the body no longer requires it. I prefer to add a half dose to the breakfast food and a half dose on the supper food.

In addition I like to give probiotics 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 sufficient water free of chlorine and free of fluoride. 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 glucose levels so that you can ask your veterinarian about adjusting the insulin dosage when necessary. Your veterinarian will probably recommend a low carbohydrate diet. Cats do better if no dry food is given at all since it tends to stress out the pancreas. Hopefully your cat will eat canned food.

Please let us know if you have any other questions.

Best wishes,
