I am considering trying your Dia-IonX for my 12 year old diabetic female Whippet. Her blood sugars are currently being "controlled" with 6units Humulin twice daily. However her thirst and urine output are increasing again. She is home alone during the day
and urinating on average every 2 hours (big output), this is becoming unmanageable as I do not want to leave her outside during the day, but she is soaking everything available. This is a dog that wouldn't have dreamed of soiling a kennel in her pre-diabetic days; currently she is in an ex-pen in the garage with absorbent material to soak up the
urine but...not an ideal set up. My question is should I be able to see improvement in her thirst and incontinence with a 30 day supply of Dia-IonX or will it typically take longer to help alleviate the symptoms? Thank you in advance for your assistance with this.

Dear Renee,

You should order more than one month's supply of Dia-IonX because you will see some moderate improvement but you have a large problem which will take time. Our goal is to manage the symptoms and then continue on to begin healing the body. There are some other things that benefit diabetic patients. Feed only foods and treats that are consistent with a diabetic diet. Give digestive enzymes with meals, probiotics and a fish oil supplement daily. I have found MSM can be helpful, too. Regular moderate exercise helps to get blood sugar into the muscles and lowers blood glucose. Together all these have a synergistic effect. So be watchful for signs of low blood sugar (weakness or shakiness) and have some honey or Karo syrup on hand in case you need to give some to bring the blood glucose level back up if it drops too low. You would need to contact your veterinarian about adjusting the insulin dosage so that it is appropriate for the body's current need. Please let us know how you progress and if there are any other questions that you may have.
