Hello - I just purchased 3 bottle of Dia-IonX for my 9 year old cat that was diagnosed last week with Diabetes. He is currenly taking 2 units of Lantus insulin in the morning and evening. Can he use Dia-IonX at the same time as insulin? How dramatic will the Dia-IonX shift his blood sugar levels? -Christine-

Dear Christine,

We recommend giving insulin when needed. 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 the dosage. 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 blood stream 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.

It usually takes time before you see a change but you should monitor the urine so that you know there is trace of glucose in the urine. If there is very little or none you would want to call your veterinarian about decreasing the insulin dosage.

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

Best wishes,

Dr. Char www.vetionx.com
