We recommend that you use insulin along with DIA-IONX. DIA-IONX will help with the symptoms of diabetes and help support the pancreas, liver, and kidneys. It takes time to get healing to occur and so that is why one should use insulin. Initially start 10 drops of DIA-IONX twice daily on the breakfast and supper meals. After you see improvement then you can switch to a whole dose on one of the meals. It is also good to combine it with other supplements such as PROBIOTICS and OMEGA 3,6,9. It is best to offer filtered water. Diet and treats will also influence your progress. For diabetic cats it is best to avoid feeding any dry food.

   It is important to monitor blood glucose levels so that you will know when you need to talk to your veterinarian about adjusting  your therapy.

If the body begins to make more functional insulin then you would need to lower your insulin dose so that you would not be overdosing. Please keep us updated so we can help guide you.

Studies have shown that diabetic cats that have been managed by diet will usually revert back to being diabetic when dry food is reintroduced. The pancreas seems to be stressed by the high carbohydrate content of the dry food. I prefer to add probiotics and OMEGA 3,6,9 separately since these are fragile substances. Vetionx carries these. In case your cat is finicky some other food options are:

 Low carbohydrate canned foods that are nonprescription 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.  Be sure to offer sufficient purified water,not city water.
