Vintek Nutrition, LLC®: On the Forefront in the Effort to Fight Dog Diabetes.

Vinny Doggie of Vintek Nutrition

Vinny of Vintek Nutrition

Vintek Nutrition, LLC® is on the forefront in the effort to fight dog diabetes.

Recent reports state that diabetes effects as many as 1 in 50-160 of the nearly 525 million dogs worldwide (Canine Corner, Stanley Coren, Ph.D.) and is growing at 32% per annum. (Banfield Hospital data – 800 hospitals) The cost of treating diabetes in people is staggering and is projected to cripple the US economy (ADA – Economic Cost of Diabetes in the U.S. in 2012) in the near future.

In an effort to save their insulin-resistant diabetic dog, Vinny (a, then 8-year-old Italian greyhound) Kameron Carlson of Vintek Nutrition® developed Dia-Treaties®. Dia-Treaties® has been tested by veterinarians and field tested for over 5 years with dramatic results. Vintek recently received a US patent on the product. Dia-Treaties® has shown in many instances, near immediate results when used in conjunction with adequate amounts of insulin to both enhance the absorption and utilization of insulin. Dia-Treaties® stabilizes the large swings in blood glucose levels while reducing the amounts of insulin needed. (Range of 15-67%) According to Dr. Lukens, “It has been a God-send to those diabetic dogs.” And, it has made his treatment of diabetic dogs much easier. Vinny lived nearly to the age of 15, well past the average life expectancy of 13.

Dia-Treaties® are a synergistic combination of human-grade food ingredients made in the USA in an FDA-inspected facility. No drugs.

Dia-Treaties®, the New Solution for Diabetic Dogs and Initial Veterinarian Skepticism

Dia-Treaties for dog diabetes

Dia-Treaties for dog diabetes

Dia-Treaties®, Vintek Nutrition’s patented product for diabetic dogs are now being used by hundreds of dogs all over the U.S. and in several foreign countries. To date, this success is brought about by word of mouth (IT WORKS!) and the notoriety afforded by the “Saving Vinny” article in the July, 2014 issue of Guideposts magazine (click link to open).

Dia-Treaties® appear to make your dog’s cells more sensitive to the insulin you are giving thereby assisting in what is termed “regulation of blood sugar”.

In the package instructions, the statement emphasizes the importance of using Dia-Treaties® with the knowledge and under the supervision of your veterinarian. This is due to the fact that most dogs require a significant reduction in their insulin dosage when taking Dia-Treaties®. Left unreduced, insulin with the Dia-Treaties can result in low blood sugar (hypoglycemia) causing lethargy, weakness or collapse.

Veterinarians are skeptical by nature. They are constantly bombarded by ads, brochures or sales people touting some “miracle cure” for some disease or other. So when purchasers of Dia-Treaties® attempt to enlist the supervision of their veterinarian with its use, this skepticism becomes manifest. A few veterinarians have told purchasers they shouldn’t use it. This opinion comes from ignorance of Dia-Treaties® and their lack of familiarity with it. After all, the product is new to the mass market so skepticism is understandable.

If you have bought Dia-Treaties® and been told not to use them we are willing to refund your money. Here’s a better idea: keep them in the refrigerator. If your veterinarian fails to successfully regulate your dog’s blood sugar, then use them. They are safe.

Interestingly enough, for many who were told NOT to use Dia-Treaties®, their dog’s blood sugars remain in the 300 – 500 mg/dl range. (normal is 90 – 110) That’s not good; it is way too high. They are NOT regulated. What is the veterinarian doing that’s so wonderful for the dog? What is there to lose?

Even if your dog is regulated, adding Dia-Treaties® to the regimen can be beneficial – for the dog and for you! Dia-Treaties® smooth out the blood sugar which is good for the dog. Dia-Treaties® also can require a reduction in insulin which is good for you – fewer $$ spent on insulin.

Diabetes can be an extremely frustrating disease to manage. We commend your commitment to your pet in implementing therapy. In over 6 years of use, Dia-Treaties® have eased the frustrations of pet owners and helped their pets.

If you have questions regarding Dia-Treaties® or are encountering skepticism and objection from your veterinarian, please do not hesitate to call. We welcome the opportunity for dialogue. We also encourage you to visit our website: www.vinteknutrition.com .

Thank you taking the time to read this and thank you for allowing us to help your beloved pet.

Dogs are Laughing in the Face of Diabetes

Vintek Boys Laughing - 1Dogs are Laughing in the Face of Diabetes- New Formula by Vintek Nutrition Shows Significant Breakthrough in Treating Diabetic Dogs

A five-year study of diabetic dogs treated with a breakthrough formula yielded successful results. Vintek Nutrition’s patent pending formula, Dia-Treaties® increased insulin utilization and stabilized blood sugar levels, which subsequently alleviated common symptoms found in diabetic dogs.

Sioux Falls, SD (PRWEB) February 05, 2014

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 is some good news! Progress has been made in the treatment of dogs with diabetes that may soon help treat people as well. Over the past 5 years a study treating diabetic dogs with a new formula yielded extremely positive data.

Vintek Nutrition’s patent pending formula, called Dia-Treaties®, is in the form of a tasty “chewable” that is given following each insulin injection. While the use of insulin is still required, clinical observations showed Dia-Treaties® decreased the amount of insulin needed ranging from 15% to 67%. Vintek Nutrition believes Dia-Treaties® will be an important addition to the diabetic treatment protocol.

Dr. Sam Lukens, a veterinarian with nearly 40 years of experience assisted in the development and testing of this product. Dia-Treaties® has been shown to enhance insulin utilization and to stabilize blood sugar levels. The dogs using the formula experienced a significant decrease in the signs associated with diabetes.

“In the course of my practice life, diabetes has often been a source of frustration. Not so much anymore. Why? Because Dia-Treaties® works! It works to stabilize blood sugar levels by making your dog’s body cells more sensitive to the insulin being given,” says Dr. Lukens.

Vintek Nutrition recently received a grant from the State of South Dakota to research and develop their formula for use in people having difficulty stabilizing their blood sugar levels. A Phase I clinical trial to ensure safety has been completed. A Phase II clinical trial has been approved focusing specifically on Type II diabetics.

The product if currently produced in a USDA-inspected facility in the South Dakota, USA.

Vintek Nutrition, LLC was founded in 2009 in pursuit of a solution for an insulin-resistant diabetic dog. The company works with veterinarians and researchers to develop specialized products. Their flagship product, Dia-Treaties, is designed to enhance insulin utilization in diabetic dogs.

Diabetic Dog Treatment Study by Vintek Nutrition, Updated 2-2014

Vintek Nutrition Study – Type I Diabetic Dogs – Original 2009 and Update 2014 (2/5/14)

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY:

A multiple-veterinarian study on Canines with Type I Diabetes showed conclusive results.  When Dia-Treaties® was supplemented with insulin, all dogs in the study experienced significant decreases in their blood glucose (b/g) levels (see graphs) decreased to the normal range.  It was also observed that the dogs required less insulin and had improved glycemic control due to increased insulin sensitivity.*

Many of the Canines in the study were insulin resistant.  Because the Dia-Treaties® formula lowered blood glucose levels, this led to a number of other observed benefits such as: healthy skin and coat, decrease in urinary tract Infections and improved overall health and vitality.*

UPDATE:

The initial study on Type I Diabetic Dogs started in 2009.  Dia-Treaties® was introduced along with insulin.  The original study included 8 dogs of various breeds with multiple veterinarians observing and reporting empirical data.  Currently, in 2014 the number of dogs reported is 27 (2 with Cushing’s disease and diabetes) and 19 veterinarians are involved. (See Subjects below).

CRITERIA:  Initially, the studglucose graphy contained 8 insulin resistant diabetic dogs with at or near maximum insulin requirements being utilized.  Insulin amounts were kept steady to objectively evaluate the results of the addition of Dia-Treaties® as the only variable.  Dogs were on either Humulin N® or Vetsulin® insulin.  Glucose curve readings were taken midday of the 12 hour cycle.  At midday, if controlled, the subject should be in the 80 to 120 mg/dl range for normal blood glucose readings.

OTHER GRAPHS ATTACHED EXPLAINED

Graph# 1  The line graph and illustrates the (b/g) reading prior to the introduction of Dia-Treaties®, the week they started Dia-Treaties®- (0) and the following weeks thereafter for a total of 6 readings.  Graphs #2   Dogs (C2 and C3) ran out of the formula 4 days prior to testing and their (b/g) levels spiked.  Observing those results, Dia-Treaties® were removed from 4 other dogs previously regulated (C4,5,6,7) to determine if their b/g levels would spike as well.  The subjects were quickly returned to the Dia-Treaties® regimen again and resumed to controlled blood sugar levels.

SUMMARY:

Our findings indicate the effectiveness of Dia-Treaties® when introduced into the regimen along with insulin injections.  Empirical and subjective data collected indicate that the unregulated dogs were not regulated until Dia-Treaties® were introduced.  Once regulated, insulin dosage had to be decreased in the range of 15% to 67%.  Based on the observed need to lower insulin levels, we recommend veterinary supervision in addition to a self-monitoring b/g kit while initially testing, due to possible hypoglycemia (low b/g readings). (see below).   The subjective results such as: more vitality, skin and coat improvement, etc., indicate all dogs, seemingly regulated or unregulated would benefit from the inclusion of Dia-Treaties® in their diabetic treatment.  It was noted that those dogs discontinuing the use of Dia-Treaties® needed to resume their use to maintain glycemic control.   For additional observations please see customer testimonials at: http://www.vinteknutrition.com/pages/Testimonials.html

Subjects & Veterinarians:  Types of Canines in the study: n=27:  Italian Greyhound (2), Miniature Pinscher (2), Cairn Terrier (1), Golden Retriever (1), Schnauzer (2), Welsh Corgi (2), Labrador Retrievers (3), Mixed Breeds (2), Spitz (1), Poodle/Pomeranian (1), Yorkshire Terrier (2), Lab/Bassett Hound (1), Sheepdog (1), American Eskimo (1), Dachshund (1), Chesapeake Bay Retriever (1), Brittany Spaniel (1). 

Veterinarians: N=19: Dr. Sam Lukens, Luken’s Animal Clinic – Head Researcher, Sioux Falls, SD.  Total of 19 veterinarians/owners reporting from various states: (SD 9, ND 1, CA 2, WA 1, OH 1, OK 1, KY 1, AZ 1, and MN 2).

DiaTreaties® Users: Please use under the supervision of a licensed veterinarian. A blood glucose monitoring kit is recommended. DiaTreaties® is known to enhance insulin’s uptake and your pet may experience a low blood sugar reading requiring you to lower insulin amounts. The signs of hypoglycemia (low blood sugar) can be as follows: lethargy, loss of balance, trouble walking and confusion to mention a few. One should consult your veterinarian immediately. If you have a diabetic dog, you should have a glucose increasing food (syrup, sugar, etc.) available should you experience a low blood sugar event. Low blood sugar is very dangerous and potentially fatal. Once the optimal insulin dosage along with the proper number of Dia-Treaties® (see box for dosage) has been established, clients experienced the need to decrease insulin dosage in the range of 15% to 67%. In the first 3 Days to 4 Weeks, it is especially important to monitor the blood glucose carefully with your veterinarian and/or a blood glucose meter. DiaTreaties® is not a cure for diabetes, however, once the correct amount of insulin and DiaTreaties® is established, it will help your dog  enjoy a happy, stable, normal life for many years to come.*
