My toy poodle, Cinnamon, has diabetes and been on Vetsulin for 2 years with good success. The product is being discontinued due to manufacturer problems. Cinnamon was doing great but this last batch is obviously bad and she is not doing well at all. The vet said that Vetsulin would be available as long as he could get it but there would have to be a change when his supply was gone. She is going downhill now so the time to change is now. I am interested in adding Dia-IonX as well as insulin, maybe I can get her off the insulin? I read several of your notes from patients and their success; hopefully the same can be done for Cinnamon. I am a widow and she and her mother Ginger are my babies and I sure don't want to lose her.

Dear Anita,
It would be a good time now to try Dia-IonX. It helps to cleanse the cells and stimulate healing. In addition to this I would give digestive enzymes with her food and a probiotic such as Purina's Fortiflora to help improve digestion and utilization of her food.

What food and treats do you feed her? Nutrition is so important.

I would start with the Dia-IonX, digestive enzymes that contain some pancreatic enzymes, and a probiotic; then later introduce high quality fish oil and a veterinary choline formulation to help reduce the chances of developing neuropathy.

Moderate daily exercise is important. A regular schedule is important for getting consistent results. It will also be very important to follow her blood sugar levels on a daily basis because it more dangerous if the blood sugar level drops too low than if it is slightly higher. You will need to know how to decrease the amount of insulin you are giving so you will need to be in regular communication with your veterinarian.

Please let us know if we can answer more questions as you go along. I hope you will be able to see some swift improvements in Cinnamon using Dia-IonX.

Best wishes,
Dr. Char
