My neutered cat (age 8) was diagnosed with diabetes this past June. He receives insulin 2x daily. His glucose level is very high. The veterinarian changed his insulin to Humulin (3 units 2x daily). Despite a presecribed canned diet he still has a very high glucose level and is crazy-ravenous. It's like having a wild raccoon in the house...getting into garbage, frantically roaming the kitchen counter-tops, wailing when I prepare my own meals. He's very skinny, too. I feel so sorry for him, and don't know what else to do. He has been tested 3 times to make sure his thyroid wasn't out of whack. Do you have any suggestions??

Dear Barbie,

You can give DIA-IONX along with insulin. DIA-IONX helps to control the symptoms of diabetes and it's therapeutic mineral base helps activate the enzyme systems in the body that help with healing. Some owners have told us it has helped stabilize the blood glucose levels. 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 it was no longer. However, each patient is unique and has its own set of circumstances. One cannot stop giving insulin until the body no longer requires it. In addition I like to give probiotics and Omega 3,6,9 daily. DIA-IONX will help the body better utilize the other supplements for a synergistic response. In addition make sure that you offer sufficient water free of chlorine and free of 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. Your veterinarian will probably recommend a low carbohydrate diet that is high in fiber. It is important that you avoid giving dry food. Cats do better on canned food because dry food puts more stress on the pancreas.

Please let us know if you have any other questions.
