Health Questions & Answers



My male cat is 8 and has had type 2 for about 3 years. He started on 3 units of vetsulin and maintained for about 1 1/2 years. He is now up to 12 1/2 units twice a day and we still can't regulate it. He has a reading in am of about 340 and six hours out on average of 160 and back up at night. He is on a diet of Hills MD low carb, and glucose mgt. wet and dry food. My question is if we put him on DiaLonX do we have to give him insulin as well or how do we wean him off or give it both? I just don't know how we would get him off insulin? Please help as we are desperate and can't leave him. He has us on a schedule.

Dear Patty,

I would try PROMAXOL to reduce any lameness and help healing to begin. PROMAXOL would be a good choice for your dog because it contains the stronger LM potencies. After improvement is seen then you can switch over to ARTHRO-IONX. In addition it is helpful to give Probiotics with each meal, Omega 3,6,9, MSM, and vitamin C daily. (We carry the first two and the other two you can get at a health food store.) The oligotherapeutic mineral base found in the IONX products helps the body to better utilize the other nutritional substances given for a synergistic response. Also be sure to give sufficient fresh water that is free of chlorine and fluoride. If you can gradually phase into a grain free diet that can be helpful too. The other thing that is sometimes beneficial is to have a certified veterinary chiropractor check for spinal alignment and make any corrections as necessary.

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

Best wishes,

Dr. Char
