You should work with your veterinarian to get the blood glucose level down to a safer level. You could start with a holistic protocol to help heal the body. This takes time and you don't want any damage to occur in the near future; that is why I would use insulin now along with Dia-IonX. 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. 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 bloodstream 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
