My 10 year old male cat Widget has been on 5 units of Lantus insulin since March 21, 2015. His first fructosamine test came back normal. He will have another fructosamine test this Wed. If it also comes back normal, could we possibly wean him off of insulin?

Dear Brenda,

You will need to talk to your veterinarian about that, but it seems that the body is well regulated on the current insulin dose and so you would not want to change anything. Have you tried DIA-IONX? Some owners have been able to lower the insulin dose while using it since it stimulates the body to heal.

Please let us know if you have any other questions.

Best regards,

Dr. Char
