My cat is 13 and she has been on insulin for about 3 years. She is throwing up just about everyday and is starting to loose weight. She has been lethargic since she has been on insulin. She eats a good dry food with protein then veggies as ingredient. Never been much of a can food eater, she would always get sick after eating it. can she stay on insulin while taking the supplement? Millie needs a change what we are doing isn't working. She is my best friend. Your guidance would be much appreciated. God bless, Julie

Dear Julie,

Yes you can give both together. One cannot stop giving insulin until the need is no longer there. Dia-IonX was designed to help with the symptoms of diabetes and to stimulate the body to heal. Healing takes time and so you need to monitor blood glucose levels to determine if it is appropriate to adjust the dosage. In the cat there are factors that help them to respond well to therapy. It is important to feed wet cat food and no dry food at all if possible and all foods including treats should consist of ingredients suitable for a diabetic. You might want to try a little of these gradually to see if you can get her adjusted to them without causing vomiting. Low carbohydrate canned foods that are nonprescription include Friskies Classic Pate Salmon, Fancy Feast - Savory Salmon Feast, Turkey and Giblets Feast, and White Meat Chicken Florentine. These are 2% or lower in carbohydrates. In addition I give digestive enzymes, probiotics and fish oil. Dia-IonX helps the body to better utilize the diet and supplements better for a synergistic effect for faster healing. It is also important to avoid giving water that contains chlorine and fluoride.

Exercise helps to move glucose from the blood stream into the muscles helping to regulate the blood sugar levels. Hopefully you can get your cat to play. Having a consistent schedule is necessary in good regulation.

Please let us know how you do or if you have any other questions.

Best wishes,

Dr. Char
