Health Questions & Answers



My 12 year old pug/pekignese was recently diagnosed with diabetes. She also has unfortunately lost all of her eye sight within a matter of 2 days. Her blood glucose levels the day of her dr visit about 3 days ago were at 470 :( They are wanting me to do insulin shots, but I'm worried about her age and that it will be hard for us to keep up with being out of town a lot, so I'm looking for an easier but equally safe alternative. Can you please recommend something for us, or is insulin the way to go?

Dear Melissa,

DIA-IONX is usually given along with insulin. Being that the glucose levels are so high I think you would need to give 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.

Please let us know if you have any other questions.

Best wishes,

Dr. Char
