Diabetic Dog Study Update – Vintek Nutrition

Vintek Nutrition, LLC® – Diabetic Dog Study Update Results

11/12/2013:  This is an update to the original 2009 study conducted by multiple veterinarians in conjunction with Vintek Nutrition, LLC®, developers of Dia-Treaties® (a patent pending treatment for diabetic dogs).  The study data along with four years of additional field data indicate conclusively that the use of Dia-Treaties® is a very beneficial tool in the effective treatment and control of diabetic dog’s blood sugar levels and overall regulation. Dia-Treaties® enables the insulin you are giving to be absorbed and utilized more effectively and efficiently.

To expedite the discovery of this new treatment, Dia-Treaties® are currently being offered to veterinarians to use with their “most difficult to regulate patients.”  The majority of those patients are either insulin resistant[i] or the more dangerous type, those experiencing the Symogi Effect[ii] (see graph).  After observing the effects on their hard to regulate patients, the veterinarians are noticing first hand, the benefits of how well Dia-Treaties® work.  Once observed on the tough cases, they are determining that their seemingly regulated patients could be regulated with less insulin and feel much better if they were to use Dia-Treaties®.  The study findings support an average decrease in insulin usage from 15% to 67% to obtain optimal regulation.  Dia-Treaties® positive effects are quickly observed within 3 to 10 days.

Effects of Too Much Insulin:

According to a 2007 article written by Morris White, PhD, of the Howard Hughes Medical Institute with the Children’s Hospital of Boston:  He states: “Too much insulin might be fine to keep glucose levels under control.  But it’s probably damaging your brain in the long run,” he says. “Better treatments for diabetes, he suggests, would concentrate on sensitizing the body’s cell to lower amounts of insulin.”

Summary:

When treating a diabetic dog, the optimal amount of insulin along with Dia-Treaties® (once established) has consistently shown to be a long-term solution for blood glucose regulation and the increased overall health of their companion dog.  Regulation means:  (normal water consumption and urination (no more accidents), normal eating habits, reduced probability of blindness, a normal life expectancy and all the other complications associated with the ravages of diabetes.)  We believe this combination of a reduced amount of insulin and Dia-Treaties® by Vintek Nutrition® will be the new protocol in the treatment of diabetes in dogs going forward.    www.vinteknutrition.com


[i] Insulin Resistance (IR) is a physiological condition in which cells fail to respond to the normal actions of the hormone insulin. Wikipedia.

[ii] Symogi Effect (posthypoglycemic hyperglycemia), is a rebounding high blood sugar that is a response to low blood sugar (hypoglycemia).  Hypoglycemia is a very dangerous, life threatening event.  Wikipedia.
