My cat has diabetes

If the veternarian has diagnosed my 10 year old female cat with diabetes and tells me that the only thing that will work is giving her insulin everyday twice a day. Will Dia-IonX be able to help me with her to control this? They also told me that she will have to take insulin for the rest of her life. Danyelle

My Dog is Diabetic, please help!

How fast should the insulin drop your glucose level in my dog? How fast is too fast? Will a too fast drop in the glucose level but not to the hypoglycemic level cause a Somogyi overswing? How long should the insulin keep working? My dog is a lab/ Catahoula cross and he is very active. My dog was diagnosed in April 2013 with diabetes mellitus. At this point he has not been well regulated. We have seen two vets. With the 2nd vet, he thought we were close to the insulin dose that our dog needed which was 8 or 8.5 units of nph insulin. We were feeding our dog Hill's w/d food, but he was losing weight so we switched to Royal Canin. So far he is maintaining his weight, but has not gained weight for the amount of time he has been on this food. Up until two weeks ago, we thought we were on road to regulating his glucose. But now his glucose has been on the high side. Is it possible that he has been honeymooning? Do they only get this honeymooning once or can it happen more often. Our original dose with the 1st vet was 13 units. The dog weighed 56.8. He was having hypoglycemic episodes. Our 1st vet did not believe us about the episodes. We switched to another vet and we ended up going down to 7 and then back to 8 or 8.5 units of insulin twice a day. He now weighs 49 pounds. Could the change in his diet have caused a change in his insulin requirements? Do you think we are going to have to go back up to the original 13 units? Is it possible that his body was not making any insulin at the 13 units, and then one month later when he started having the hypoglycemic episodes his body was making some of his own insulin? Is it possible that now his cells have shut down and body is not making insulin which in return is causing a higher insulin requirement? Is there any test that can be done on a dog to test if he is producing insulin of his own?

Can I give Dia-IonX to my Cat with insulin

Hi Dr. Wilson, We've been using the Dia-IonX for Simeon, my 12 old cat for about 4 months. It was helping him for the first 3 months, but then his water intake/urination/demeanor worsened, and we went to 2 2.5 ml doses a day, but he got worse so we took him to the Vet. I showed the Dia-IonX to the Vet telling him we had been using it for several months with very good results. He had never heard of it (he is old school. Simeon's glucose was 359 and tests showed negative for kidney disease, so the vet started him on 1 unit of Lantus insulin 2 times a day in the hopes of reversing the diabetes which is possible with Lantus. I also am giving him 500 mcg of liquid methylcobalamin (no sugars or additives) to help with the neuropathy he began to experience in his back legs. That has since resolved. The insulin seemed to help the first week, but his urine stick tests I do every other day or so have come back higher, ie above the 100 range and he is again drinking water constantly. I stopped him cold turkey with the Dia-IonX supplement when we started him on the Lantus insulin which perhaps I should not have done. My Vet is not well read on either nutritional remedies for cats or homeopathic solutions, but he is all I've got here, so I don't confer with him anymore on nutritional issues. I also feed my cats ground chicken with Alnutrin plus Calcium supplement which I make in 24 pound batches every 3 weeks and freeze. I have 6 cats and 3 of them had allergy issues/IBD which have all resolved using the chicken/Alnutrin food with no grain, or added chemicals, etc. If the dia-ionix will help regulate his thirst, I will use it. I just want to make sure it does not interfere with his Lantus. I give him his shots just after he eats in the morning and evening 12 hours apart. I am planning to purchase an AlphaTrack glucometer for cats to help me do curves for him at home. He is good at the Vet, but the cost involved with doing the curves on a regular basis is beyond what we can do right now. I wish there was an easier way to get blood than through the ear... In any case, please advise with regards to the use of Dia-IonX in conjunction with Lantus insulin. Thank you so much. Pamela

Homeopathic drops specifically for kidney help?

Other than you product Dia-IonX that our dog has been on for over 3 months, what else can I give her to help her kidneys? I read that using insulin for diabetes will usually bring about kidney problems....Sara's latest labs show her bun at 43 and her creatinine at 1.2. Have any suggestions? Is the Dia-IonX not helping with her bun levels? Thanks, Jeanne

My cat is diabetic, I need help for her

After unsuccessfully trying insulin to help my cat, I turned to Dia-IonX. My vet (attached to a pet rescue group) would not see Suzi anymore because she scratches and fights against needles and powder-medicine. That was about a year ago. Although I administered Dia-IonX faithfully to Suzi, she continually loses weight, eats voraciously until 2 days ago. Now I believe she is ready to pass on--or is this just an in-between attack of something else? She will take the fluid from her cat food (I add water) but mothing else. Does she still have a chance at life?? Would you recommend anything thing? Gratefully, Sr. Dee

My dog is diabetic

My 15 year old Peck-a-Poo was diagnosed with Diabetes about 5 weeks ago. I am giving her 2 units of insulin twice a day. I am confused over the food thing as many of your readers. Vet put my dog on Science Presription W/D wet and dry. I am surprised at the grain amount and so little "meat" . Star hates the taste and won't eat it unless she is starving. This can not be good. What is a normal glucose for dogs and can diabetes be controlled with a whole food "home cooked" meals? She is blind and is hard of hearing, just what am I doing by going through this regime at her age? -Dee-
