Our story (Vintek Nutrition, LLC – Kameron Carlson, Nancy Carlson, Vinny, Leo and Francesca) was featured in the international magazine, Guideposts in their July 2014 edition. It is a four page story beginning on page 44.  We are also featured in Guideposts – The Family Room section on page 65. The magazine has an estimated 5 million viewers and 1.7 million registered subscribers.

The story is about the pursuit of a solution for a beloved diabetic dog (Vinny) and an answer resulting in a breakthrough treatment for diabetic dogs.  The company recently obtained a patent for their discovery and in-turn has a similar patent pending for people.


Diabetes is increasing at epidemic proportions in people and even more dramatically in dogs. Since 2006, dog diabetes has increased 32% (American Humane Society, 2012) and 23% in people (CDC 2012). Both diabetic dogs and people often have similar difficulties in regulating their blood sugar levels. It is estimated that 1 in 160 dogs have this disease. There are over 73 M dogs in the USA alone and an estimated 400 M worldwide according to

    Anything similar for felines? Have a pre diabetic cat with thyroid issues there any reason to not try the dog version on my 17 yr old cat?


    • Hi Ms. Hyatt:
      Cats will not (mine would not) eat it on their own. Not tested on diabetic cats, but suspect it would work.
      Dogs are type I diabetics for the most part and cats usually type II. Ingredients are GRAS (generally recognized as safe) for human consumption. Food, not any drugs, etc..
