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 to keep the blood sugar at an acceptable level. Initially start with a half dose 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 , OMEGA 3,6,9 , and MSM. It is best to offer filtered water.

    It is important to monitor blood glucose levels so that you will know when you need to talk to your veterinarian about adjusting your insulin dose.   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. I  think it is a good idea to check the urine glucose levels at home.  If there is no sugar in the urine you would want your veterinarian to check the amount in the blood before giving another dose of insulin.

  I think you should talk to your veterinarian about  your injection technique.   Perhaps you can trim some fur on the scruff and apply a little lidocaine to numb the spot you will inject. Try giving a meat treat just before the poke to distract your dog .   Please keep us updated so we can help guide you.
