Health Questions & Answers



My dog is 10 years old and has been diagnosed with Diabetes. We currently feed her only twice a day, followed by an Insulin injection. We currently but the Insulin through Walgreens and it runs $60+. Is there a more inexpensive way to treat her condition, that will give the same controlling factor as Insulin or a cheaper/generic available? And, if so, where? Thank you

Dear Michael,

It is surprising the difference in price at different pharmacies. Be sure to check with Costco (you can buy pharmaceuticals without a membership) and Sam's Club. It would also be worth giving supplements if it can help to lower the amount of insulin needed.

DIA-IONX was designed to be used along with insulin. Along with giving insulin I would suggest you try DIA-IONX because it 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 needed. However, each patient is unique and has its own set of circumstances. One cannot stop giving insulin until the body no longer requires it. In addition I like to give probiotics, MSM, 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 so that you can ask your veterinarian about adjusting the insulin dosage when necessary. Your veterinarian has probably recommended a low carbohydrate diet that is high in fiber.

Please let us know if you have any other questions.

Best wishes,

Dr. Char
