My Dog has Hypothyroid and Diabetes, please help!

My 9 year old Lab mix has just been diagnosed with Hypothyroid & diabetes. They seem to be "sudden onset." I was told if she had been diagnosed earlier she would be more treatable. I'm 81 and it's almost a coin toss as to which of these can be treated. She doesn't seem to be in any pain (extreme itching being the exception). What can I do. At this point it seems that all we can do is feed her and love her...the alternative seems to be having her put to sleep.

Dogs diagnosed with Hypothyroid

Thank you for answering my recent question.Things have changed since our last correspondence. I just found out that both of my dogs have been diagnosed with hypothyroid and are now taking 0.8 mg levothyroxin folofine 2x daily. My veterinarian has also prescribed prednisone 20 mg 1x daily for her itching. I'm currently giving her the following; Omega 3 1000 mg 2x daily, Pet Tab Plus 1x daily, Zrytec 10 mg x2, Earthborne holistic grain free food and treats, Sojos grain free fruit an vegetables food , purified water to drink. I'm using Sebolux medicated shampoo . She has terrible flaking skin, itching,and losing hair in clumps. Just recieved Derma-IonX today. Is it okay to use Dema-IonX with the above listed items. Do you have any suggestions? Thank you. Carla
