Dr. Wilson, I have a Siberian Husky 10 1/2 years old. Diagnosed with Diabetes on 9/30/09. She is currently on Humulin N of 22 units every 12 hours. (She can't go below 7 or more than 30 every 12 hours). I test her urine with the Diastix to regulate her insulin up & down. She also eats Royal Canine Diabetic HF18 Dog food. She is starting to leak more even though I do give her a peeing pill. She had a leaking problem when I first got her at 11 months old and one vet told me it was a sphincter problem. I know she will be prone more to urinary infections. She was on an antibiotic last month. She just started getting cataracts in her eyes and uses her other senses to get around. My husband walks her every day for her exercise.

My question is do you think with her condition that the Dia-IonX would help her more on lessening her insulin?

After giving Dia-IonX for a while some owners have reported that they have been able to reduce the insulin dosage and some have been able to stop giving it because their dog no longer needed it. However, each patient is unique and has its own set of circumstances. One cannot stop giving insulin until the body no longer requires it. Along with giving insulin I would suggest you try Dia-IonX because it helps to control the symptoms of diabetes and its therapeutic mineral base helps activate the enzyme systems in the body that help with healing. In addition give digestive enzymes with each meal, a probiotic, and a fish oil supplement daily. Dia-IonX will help the body better utilize the other supplements for a faster response. In addition, make sure that you offer sufficient water free of chlorine and fluoride. A regular exercise schedule is also helpful in moving glucose from the blood and into the muscles which will reduce the blood glucose.

It is important that you monitor the blood glucose levels so that you can ask your veterinarian about adjusting the insulin dosage when necessary. Please let us know how you progress and if you have any other questions.

Best wishes,
Dr. Char
