Dear Ann,

DIA-IONX was designed to help with the symptoms of diabetes and to stimulate the body to heal. Healing takes time and so you need to monitor blood glucose levels to determine if it is appropriate to adjust your therapy. In the cat there are factors that help them to respond well to therapy. It is important to feed wet cat food and no dry food at all if possible and all foods including treats should consist of ingredients suitable for a diabetic. DM should be available in canned form. There are some OTC foods that are low in carbohydrates in case your cat does not like prescription diabetic food. The food you choose should be 2% or lower in carbohydrates. In addition I give digestive enzymes, probiotics, and Omega 3,6,9. DIA-IONX helps the body to better utilize the diet and supplements better for a synergistic effect for faster healing. Sometimes cats are able to get off insulin and control their glucose levels by diet and supplementation. It is also important to avoid giving water that contains chlorine and fluoride.

Exercise helps to move glucose from the blood stream into the muscles helping to regulate the blood sugar levels. Hopefully you can get your cat to play. Having a consistent schedule is necessary in good regulation.

Please let us know how you do or if you have any other questions.

Best wishes,

Dr. Char www.vetionx.com
