Health Questions & Answers



Hi, My 11yr. old Pug Reuben is now diabetic, he gets 7units insulin 2x a day. sleeps most of the time, urinates every 2.5 hrs, but his bowel movements are fine. He eats very good but drinks a lot of water. Another concern is he gets up 2 to 3x a night to go outside to do his business. My question is, does your product DIA-IONX help him sleep at night? or will his body have the same effect as it does now on his insulin? My concern is he wakes everyone up at night, and nobody gets a sound sleep as we did in the past. He is now blind, which adds stress on the dog. This came up all of a sudden, within 2 weeks this all happened. We took him to the Vet, they recommended insulin. His ketones are just a trace, his suger still runs borderline high though, but in range according to his Vet Doctor. My concern is How long does a bottle of your product last if it is in comparison to 14 units of injections per day. how much pr ltr. of consertrated liquid is equivalent to a unit of insulin? This is a determining factor I have. And will he sleep at night? I'm new at Diabetic for dogs, and am looking for any way to help him through his senior years. As of now his quality of life sucks. He was blindsided as we were from this condition. We feel really bad for him, but want the best. Sticking him with needles every day is heartbreaking. Thats why I'm looking for an alternitive. HOW MUCH WOULD ONE BOTTLE LAST? Thanks for answering my question. I look foward to hearing from you. Joe

Dear Joe,

You may give both insulin and DIA-IONX. 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 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. You will also need to be careful of treats.

To help the diabetic eyes you can check out eyedrops such as OcluVet. However, they do sting a little but they do make the eyes feel cleaner. Please let us know if you have any other questions.

Best wishes,

Dear Sandy,

You might want to look at some of our products to help the skin. DERMA-IONX which is an oral homeopathic product stimulates the enzyme systems in the body which reduces itching and inflammation, promotes healing of the skin and helps with assimilation of nutritional components in diet and supplements. The supplements I use along with it include PROBIOTICS and OMEGA 3,6,9. Together with DERMA-IONX it produces a synergistic effect. I would also suggest that you give your dog only filtered water for drinking and bathing if your water contains chlorine or fluoride.

Has your dog had a blood test done to evaluate thyroid function or other organ function?

Best regards,
