My dog had some blood work and urine testing done today. The vet came back and said she probably has diabetes. This office does not follow pets with serious illnesses because it is on a Military base. Now I have to search for a vet and start my dog; Sophie on a regiment of treatment. Of course I cried all the way home. I do not want to jump right into giving insulin shots. What can I do?

Dear Virginia,

 It is best to give your dog insulin and get her stabilized.  High blood sugar levels can damage the eyes and kidneys with time.  We have gotten feedback from some owners that they have been able to reduce the insulin dosage and some have been able to stop giving it because their dog no longer needed it. However, each patient is unique and has its own set of circumstances.   One cannot stop giving it until the body no longer requires it.  Along with giving 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.  In addition give digestive enzymes with each meal, and a probiotic and a fish oil supplement daily.  The Dia-IonX will help the body better utilize the other supplements for a faster response.  It is important that you monitor the blood glucose levels so that you can ask your veterinarian about adjusting the insulin dosage when necessary.  Please let us know how you progress and if you have any other questions.<br /><br />

Best wishes,
Dr. Char
