Why are you using Dia-Ionx for pain? How long have you used it? Can you give me a few details about your pet?

Customer:The vet said he was diabetic and wanted to put him down or get the insulin and I could not afford the insulin nor the treatment. So I bought him home and did research on the net and saw the vetlonx. It's been a week now and he seems fine but I know he not cause he just sits in one spot day and night.

Response: Usually insulin is used to get the blood glucose level down faster. Cats usually get 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. 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. There are some OTC foods that are low in carbohydrates in case your cat does not like prescription diabetic food. I would try these Low carbohydrate canned foods that are nonprescription; they 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. Dry cat food stresses out the pancreas. In addition I give probiotics 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 cats are able to  control their glucose levels by diet and supplementation. I usually start with 10 drops twice daily on the breakfast and supper meals.  If needed you can give another 10 drops orally at bedtime.  With improvement the number of doses can be reduced.  You can continue giving it to keep the blood glucose stable.   You can measure the amount of sugar being passed in the urine with a urine dip stick to know if anything is changing.  That value is not the same as  in the blood  but it is easier than getting a blood sample.  It is also important to avoid giving  water that  contains chlorine and fluoride.   Exercise helps to reduce blood glucose levels.
