My dog will be going on insulin today. He's 7 years old and very overweight (140#). He also has excessive dandruff and itching. Will Dia_ionx be ok with the insulin? Also, what about the skin problems and his weight?

One can give DIA-IONX along with insulin. 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 your therapy. You may find your dog needs less insulin. In addition I give probiotics. MSM, and Omega 3,6,9. DIA-IONX helps the body to utilize the diet and supplements better for a synergistic effect for faster healing. Sometimes pets are able to control their glucose levels by diet and supplementation. It is also important to avoid giving water that contains chlorine and fluoride. Exercise helps to reduce blood glucose levels.

When using insulin I like to monitor the glucose levels in the urine (using a dipstick) to get daily notification if anything is changing and so that you can contact your veterinarian and have a blood glucose done. If the body begins to make more functional insulin, the amount of the insulin injection needs to be decreased or you would be overdosing.

What are you feeding your dog? Diet can influence weight loss and dandruff.
