MY 12 YEAR OLD YORKIE HAS BEEN DIAGNOSED WITH DIABETES, WHICH WAS JUST RECENTLY. ALTHOUGH I HAVE BEEN THERE MANY TIMES BEFORE, I AM JUST NOW BEING TOLD, AND NOT GIVEN ANY MEDICATION FOR THIS. DO YOU HAVE ANY ADVICE, PLEASE?

Dear Karen,

 My suggestion for diabetes is to use Dia-IonX and feed a food like Purina's DM.  In addition give the following supplements:  Digestive enzymes with each meal and probiotics and fish oil supplement daily.  In addition give a sufficient amount of fresh water that is free of chlorine and fluoride.  Also get into a regular moderate exercise schedule because it will help move the extra blood glucose from the bloodstream into the muscles.  You should find out how high the blood glucose is and keep monitoring it so you will know if gets any higher then you could give insulin to bring it back down to safer levels.  The above suggestions have helped many pets lower their high blood glucose, but your dog is an individual and you need to know what your dog's response is.  We want to keep the blood sugar well regulated so that the consequences of diabetes such as cataracts or kidney damage can be avoided.<br /><br />  

 Hope we can help you with your dog.  Please let us know if you have any other questions.<br /><br />

Sincerely,
Dr. Char
