Health Questions & Answers



Hello, ran across your website today. Looking for modifications to lower elevated blood sugar levels in my cat, Bandit. She has an Auto-immune Deficiency whose short name is Stomatitis. She was a stray whom I befriended, ultimately found that the steroid shots weren't going to cure the condition. She has been on a tiny dosage of L-Pred for the 13 years I've known her. She is at least 15 years. Can the Dia-IonX be used with the steroid? Her blood test 2 weeks ago came back elevated on the high end of normal, but indicating that she is developing diabetes, in my eyes, if not addressed. The vet thinks there is a good chance of reversal. Thank you for your input. Bandit is a valuable member of our family.

Dear Karen,

You may use Dia-IonX along with the steroid, just give them at separate times of the day. 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.

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

Best wishes,

Dr. Char
