My 10 year old dog was diagnosed with diabetes a month ago. He receives insulin twice a day, but his glucose levels remain high. Is Dia-IonX safe to give with insulin, and will it reduce the need for insulin, or at least lower the dosage amount?

Thank you

Dear Mary,

It is safe to give Dia-IonX with other medications including insulin. However, you will need to closely monitor blood glucose levels just in case if you need to lower the insulin dosage. Giving too much insulin will create hypoglycemia and so you will need to watch for signs of weakness or shakiness. If that were to occur you would need to give some honey or Karo syrup and call your veterinarian. It is important to maintain communication with your veterinarian so he or she can help you determine the best insulin dosage.

Dia-IonX will help with the common symptoms of diabetes but also stimulate the enzyme systems in the body to help with detoxification, cellular hydration, and healing. There are a few other things that I suggest to help achieve better regulation sooner. Feed only approved food and treats, and give digestive enzymes with each meal. In addition, probiotics, MSM, and a fish oil supplement daily are helpful. Regular, moderate daily exercise is important because it facilitates entry of glucose from the blood into the muscles. Dia-IonX will help the body to utilize the supplements better and together there is a synergistic effect. I hope we can get this situation under control quickly so that the eyes and kidneys will not be affected by the diabetes.

Please let us know how you progress and if you have any other questions.
