My cat is currently receiving 2 shots a day of vetsulin at 2 cc each. How would I go from insulin to solely using your product?

Dear Nancy,

 You cannot just wean off insulin.  You need to heal the body so that it does not need as large a dose.<br /><br />

Some owners have been able to do that but it is an individual response and requires careful monitoring so that you will know if the dose needs to be adjusted. Your veterinarian would advise you on when and how much to give. To help get the best results feed an approved diabetic food such as Purina DM (canned and no dry food at all). Give Dia-IonX, probiotics and a fish oil supplement daily. Also try to exercise your cat by playing with a toy so you can help get the blood glucose to move into the muscles. A regular routine is important. Please keep us informed of your progress.

Best wishes,
Dr. Char
