You might try the conservative approach with diet and checking the urine at home. If the glucose levels climb higher then start the insulin. Stress can elevate the sugar levels in the blood and urine. 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. 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. Your veterinarian will probably recommend a low carbohydrate diet that is high in fiber. It is important that you avoid giving dry food. Canned food would be better because dry food puts more stress on the pancreas.
