Dear Ken,

DIA-IONX is usually given along with 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. Initially I like to give a half dose twice per day on the breakfast and supper food. 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 in case if the body starts to make more functional insulin and requires less in injectable form. It is easiest to feed a prescription diabetic diet. Purina, Royal Canin, and IAMS make diets. Maybe one of those will be more palatable.

Please let us know if you have any other questions.

Best wishes,

Dr. Char
